In my teams lite patch I have introduced allied victory. This is only
logical, I think, and users have requested it in the past. It is
nonsensical and annoying that once you have finished off all your enemies,
you have to break your alliances and finish off each other afterwards to
make the game come to a conclusion.

Since inclusion of the teams lite patch does not seem to be on the agenda
until after the release, I can rip out that part which introduces allied
victory and post it as a separate patch, if there is interest for this. It
is but one page of code and shouldn't be very controversial.
