        That's right, because now calendars work according to the real
world, rather than the bizarre world that Freeciv used to inhabit. There
is no year skipped at the AD-BC transition, so we need to add an extra
year somewhere. You can add it to the AD calendars if you prefer, by
editing the ruleset, but I thought it cleaner this way (and nobody
complained at the time).

Well, that's easy to change, if this is the majority opinion.
