Aha - I can use require=COPYING\.LESSER and containing=COPYING, to
fine-tune this to say that if "COPYING" is present, it better be a
substring of "COPYING.LESSER" in at least one usage; I can't outright
forbid plain COPYING (think the spec file, which installs both), but can
forbid COPYING.LIB (any file accidentally referring to the old name).
Since most files use the string "COPYING" zero times (our usual
boilerplate) or one time (calling out a single file), this will catch
most common abuses.

Even though I still don't prevent someone from saying "COPYING.asdf" if
they also use "COPYING.LESSER" somewhere else in the same file, I don't
think anyone will really attempt that.  Meanwhile, with my tweaks, I was
able to get the exception list smaller (which was the only reason I
originally created a new rule in the first place), so I was able to
combine my new rule with an existing one and rename it to cover the fact
that it now covers multiple copyright usage checks.  Here's what I pushed.

Subject: [PATCH] maint: enforce correct copyright usage

To ensure we don't regress and cause the need for further
cleanups, add a 'make syntax-check' rule that ensures new
files have proper copyright contents.

* cfg.mk (sc_copyright_address): Rename...
(sc_copyright_usage): ...and enhance.
