I use the recommended wording in files like mskrb5_fmt. In files that 
someone else wrote and I just added stuff (these are the vast majority 
of my patches), I can't claim "the" copyright, can I? Or maybe I can 
claim a copyright for the few lines of mine, but then I'm not sure how 
to word it. Maybe I should just say "This and that added by magnum 2012" 
and nothing more?

There's also files like which is a new file but is a 95% 
copy of which is your file. Not sure how to word a statement 
there. I do like to keep it short but it's more of not knowing what to 
write in these cases.
