People said that that slows the game. But i think its still small pox. 
And its easy to make something like small pox too. With 5-6 cities in
center which builds the settlers and 12 cities which get the homecities
of the new settlers. So you will build as many cities as possible.

I tried my patch with the actual cvs and the AI is building few but
cities. Personally i can't test it out, because all what i would say
wouldn't be unbiassed.
