My idea was that if you have other means to deal with unhappyness, those
are considered first and you only have to pay for whats not been taken
care of already. This makes it very predictable I think. The effective
luxury rate could even be calculated, so that you can identify where you
have to pay and employ military or elvises there.

So do I, for predictability. But I'd like to combine it with auto-elvis or
pay-for-unhappyness (see above) because otherwise you have to check each
city each time a city is founded.

Ok. That seems reasonable.
