Note about the Y2K problems:
The parser can only handle years with at least 2 digits. 2
digit year values get expanded by adding the century using
DateTime.add_century(), while 3 digit year get converted
literally. To have 2 digit years also be interpreted literally,
add leading zeros, e.g. year 99 must be written as 099 or 0099.
""" Sliding window approach to the Y2K problem: adds a suitable
century to the given year and returns it as integer.
The window used depends on the current year (at import time).
If adding the current century to the given year gives a year
within the range current_year-70...current_year+30 [both
inclusive], then the current century is added. Otherwise the
century (current + 1 or - 1) producing the smallest difference is
