Yes, there was some recent discussion on k-c-d about whether they should use 
the proleptic Gregorian calendar fro dates prior to 1582.  I said that would 
be better for us, but it's not a big deal if they don't do it, because as you 
point out we still need ExtDate to cover more remote dates anyway.

Yes, it will.  Although, according to lxr.kde.org, only kst and kstars are 
using ExtDate classes now.  I don't know if kst would need dates prior to 
JD=1 or not, so they might be happy to use the new QDate.  So it's possible 
that we'll be the only ones using ExtDate :)
