This isn't a cheat, this is fundamental strategy!

Anyway, there is command "fix", which can fix the endyear.  However this=20
will mean that you will not be able to change the endyear no matter what.

Another possibility (not implemented afaik) is to have flags like in=20
Diplomacy game: each player can set his own flag to "I want this game to=20
end" and when all human players have set the flag, the game ends.  So it's=
like voting with every one having veto power.  There are problems here=20
associated with players who are connected but are not playing, but it's=20
better than nothing.

Implementing the flags should be easy.
