Plus the fact that leap year started some year AD. All this, of course assumes you're using a Gregorian calendar. Mayan, Aztec, Chinese, Hebrew, and many other calendars exist.
What is BC? Also, the change of a couple of seconds either way isn't
enough to throw us off by anything greater than a day every century or
so. So it's probably not really worth worrying about.
cal_days_in_month (and friends) support the Gregorian, Julian, Jewish
and French Revolutionary calendars.
