related to ticket:324 and ticket:245

Currently, the copyright block is detected as the first appearance of Copyright (C). This causes several problems in particular that svndigest updates also files that should not be updated (hence ticket:245). That ticket would not solve the problem completely though. For instance, one could imagine a case where you have several copyright statements:

Copyright (C) 1970 Joe Doe

This file is part of...


Copyright (C) 2008 Peter Johansson 

This file is part of svndigest...

In that case you only wanna update the latter statement. One scheme might be to check if the author is included in the list copyright-alias, and if not ignore the block.
