It's no big either way, so if you'd rather
have a larger attic and if Stephen doesn't care, let's
make it larger.  I'll send out a proposed patch shortly,
which creates the attic in zic input format, so that it
can be used to further populate the database if you like.
This is all still experimental, but at least the latest
experimental version has recovered the pre-1970 data that
people were concerned about.
