I believe that the years in the copyright statement should reflect the dates
when you made significant contributions to the file.

    Copyright 2003, 2004, 2007 <name>

This basically claims that some portions of the file are copyright 2003
<name>, others are copyright 2004 <name>, and yet others are copyright 2007

You can use the shorthand 2003-2007 to indicate ongoing development, such as
a company making regular changes to the file.
