I plan to investigate the possibility of having support for non-Gregorian
calendars.  Some calendars, like the Islamic calendar are very difficult
due to them being non-determenistic, but other calendars, e.g. the
pre-Gregorian western calendar, and the Persian calendar are nice enough
that we can support them.
