I've been playing with advdomestic.c. This manager computes unit counts
of various types, and instead of building caravans at priority 1, first
builds units (even military ones) to bring quotas up to minimum levels.

I found that this really helps pacificist AIs maintain a few roaming
patrol units and such so they have some defence against surprise attacks
and barbarians. It also promotes a more warlike game as free units tend
to go off and pick fights which starts up the advmilitary() machine.

I would suggest that the quota system be a good thing to expand on.

Sea and air units are both difficult to come by otherwise, or so I find.
