I don't know if this is correct wrti the software Sunday being 1
and Monday being 2, but if it is, I sincerely believe it is an
error in the software. Monday should be 1, and Sunday should be 0 or
Seven. This according both to the POSIX standard ISO/IEC 9945 and
to the ISO locale standard ISO/IEC TR 14652.
