Postgres sticks it to the Pope

While reading through the PostgreSQL documentation (an open-source database), I stumbled across this gem:

The first century starts at 0001-01-01 00:00:00 AD, although they did not know it at the time. This definition applies to all Gregorian calendar countries. There is no century number 0, you go from -1 to 1. If you disagree with this, please write your complaint to: Pope, Cathedral Saint-Peter of Roma, Vatican.
