Information like that would be appropriate for the 'calendar' file, so I 
suggest proposing a patch for that file.

Thanks for all your work in nailing this down, by the way. It'll take me

and most likely that will have to wait until after the next (somewhat 
urgent) patch because of Morocco. But I do plan to get to it.
