Or a jewish year? Or a muslim year? Or counting since the
first tooth of Carolus Magnus or the last onomatopoeia
pronounced by Hannibal during his crossing of the Alps?

Tantek needs a year. He never said he needs to specify in
which system the year is counted. He never said he cannot use
a radiobutton for BC/AD or any other calendaring system
aside of the year input.

Why make things complex when it's possible to make them simple?
