Just a FYI, I've almost finished porting the KCalendarSystem* classes and 
KDate* widgets over to the extended QDate range, so KDE4.0 will fully support 
dates from Julian 2 Jan -4713 to Gregorian 31 Dec 9999 (current upper limit 
due to date format issues).  Not exactly astronomical or even geological time 
spans, but certainly useful for historic purposes.  Just beware the QDate 
switchover from Julian to Gregorian, not exactly standard.  I'll be adding a 
proper proleptic Gregorian in 4.1 for those who need it.

I've also done a major clean-up of the KCalendarSystem API and implementation, 
so if you do need to keep ExtDate then let me know and I'll lend a hand to 
bring it back into sync
