Ross, please mention filenames, function names and line numbers for tech goals.
Can you describe the weights used in a bit more detail? I know you changed the
weights in your corecleanup patches and that resulted in radical behaviour

Yes, I noticed this. What happens if you fix priority so that military units
don't always have higher priority than anything else? My initial tries ended
up with the ai always building improvs and wonders, too much so. The current
ai also tends to flip flop. I've often noticed the ai changing wonder prod from
city to city.

Funny. I came across a function that evaluated government types. Clearly it
doesn't do what it says? It trys to pick goverments based on trade and shield
prod etc.
