Alas, the AI has no checks and balances on building of workers. It doesn't
build all that many settlers since cities can't bear the food costs. And
when it does build too many settlers, it merely ships them off to another
island to settle down. Since we can't do the latter with workers, it
builds way too many and they don't know what to do.

The entire code must probably be rewritten. It might attempt to estimate
how many workers are needed on that continent and then build max that
many. Then it could ship excess workers off the island. Aaarrgh. That will
not be easy. Any other ideas?
