Instead of growing lists of copyright year numbers with gaps,
convert the sequence to a minimal containing range, e.g.:

  -Copyright @copyright{} 1994, 1996, 1998, 2000-2001, 2003-2016 Free
  -Software Foundation, Inc.
  +Copyright @copyright{} 1994-2016 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

This change will take effect the next time 'make update-copyright' is run.

* (update-copyright-env): Add UPDATE_COPYRIGHT_FORCE=1
to rejoin some split lines, and UPDATE_COPYRIGHT_USE_INTERVALS=2
to make update-copyright use only one year range.
