No Jewish date is always valid in the Gregorian calendar, so there's
no point having an "always valid" Judaic file.

/usr/share/calendar/calendar begins:
 * Jewish calendar for the CE year 2000
 * 23 Tevet 5760 - 5 Tevet 5761

I think that's fairly clear ;-)

Their list is much more comprehensive than mine, but mine contains far
more detail.  So it's worth merging them, but I'm not quite sure how
you'd like to do this.  There is also the implicit assumption in their
calendar that the user is Orthodox and living outside of Israel,
neither of which need be true.

Let me know what you want to do.
