According to Emperor, Pope, and Parliament years divisible by 4 are to
be bissextile. Today is the second sixth day before the end of
February, so today is leap day. I expect it is hard to find any
software which implements this as specified in the documents.
In this case the workaround implementation does not result in
widespread calls for the abolishment of leap day.
It's just a matter of which representation is palatable.
