Not as far as I know, for civil time.  There was some use
for religious purposes but it didn't use the approximation
in those files.

These files probably cause more confusion than they're worth,
so I'll propose a couple of patches to remove them, in two followup
emails.  I haven't pushed these patches to the experimental
github version.
