If the nweeks take on the designations of Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, and
Tango, we can eliminate seasons and make the nyear last five nweeks.
Holidays could be New Nyear's Day (before the first of each year),
Independence Day (whenever that is again) and Peter Suber's Birthday (the
date of which will depend on when we implement this calendar).

And I'm still thinking we keep "nweek" - after all, the old ten-day things
had that name.
