Yep, I'll do a blanket conversion at some point.

I keep nagging, but the folks responsible for those don't seem to be

I think the lack of a valid copyright date is why that odd one is being
picked up, I'll try and fix that.
Not sure what to do about those MPL files yet.

There's an error in one of the python doc files (it references a
non-existant file), running bcp with --cvs fixes the error though.

This is weird: if I build and run bcp from the VC7.1 IDE then there are no
errors, but building from the bjam and running from the command line causes
that error. I have no idea what's going on here, but I'll try and look into
