In the long run it would be nice if this is replaced with something
similar to:

  cids_used = collect_cids3(cids);
  name_and_sort_items(cids, cids_used, items, TRUE, pdialog->pcity);

  for (item = 0; item < cids_used; item++) {
    cid cid = items[item].cid;
    int row_no;

    get_city_dialog_production_row(row, sizeof(buf[0]),
                                   cid_id(cid), cid_is_unit(cid),
    row_no = gtk_clist_append(GTK_CLIST(pdialog->change_list), row);
                           row_no, (gpointer) cid);

This change_list_num_improvements field is just ugly.
