Update copyright year in license.txt

The WordPress copyright date in license.txt is 2003-2010. Shouldn't it be updated to the current year?

Attaching a patch to push it to 2003-2013 (figuring it's so darn close).

Actually, that 2003-2010 range should stay. That's part of the historical notice when WordPress was licensed as "GPL" with no version specified. But the current copyright (top) can be updated.

Update the copyright notice to 2013. Yes — WordPress turns *10* this year.
