Remove dates from the per-file copyright header

Currently we include this header at the top of every file in Twisted:
# Copyright (c) 2001-2010 Twisted Matrix Laboratories. # See LICENSE for details.
with only the dates varying, depending (sometimes) on when the file was introduced and when it was last modified.
The primary outcome of this is that most reviews start with the comment:
- Please update the dates in the copyright header in modified files
This is strictly a waste of time for developers and reviewers.
The copyright header on all files should be changed to:
# Copyright (c) Twisted Matrix Laboratories. # See LICENSE for details.
We should maintain a date only in the
LICENSE file, and update it only at release times.
Various wiki and developer howtos should be updated to remove mentions of copyright date updates, as well.
