This has a reasonable explanation. If you use techlevel 50, the cost for
researching a new tech is insanely high (compared to science income), so
the want for Darwin's goes haywire.

More troubling, any very good build target available early on might drown
out settlers.

So I guess we should WAG up settlers before happysize is reached so that
settlers win over wonders, attack units and other useless fluff every
time until we manage to grow.
