The admin guide has a hard coded year in plain.sdf and preamble.sdf.

We need to look at using an include file or similar that can have its dates
updated when we do copyright updates.

"Doing copyright updates" _is_ updating hard-coded years in
the source.  I'm pretty sure they ought to stay hard-coded.

openldap-etc.git:misc/crupdate.sh needs a fix so it also
recognizes these two dates, and/or the .sdf copyright notices
can be modified so crupdate catches them.

Right, that's the goal here.
