Here is what I committed.

I tweaked a few things:

- updated copyright year in one file
- hardcoded line number in py-events.exp
- ChangeLog
- inferior_fn_handle -> inferior_call_handler
- whitespace
- py-infcallevent.c -> py-infevents.c

I also forgot to set the git Author before pushing it upstream,
so I reverted and recommitted with the correct Author.
[I know one can change the author of the most recent
commit with git commit --amend, but I had already pushed it
upstream, and I wasn't sure of a simple way of fixing things
without reverting/recommiting.]
