I'd like to see a bit some discussion up front about the expected
evolution of this class.
For example, "once an era is defined, subsequent versions of the API
will add a constant for it. etc. Eras are expected to have consecutive
integers associated with them, etc. "
Once a formal name is added for the new era, will that value be serial
equivalent to the current new era value being used in the class?
Basically, is the name or the int value the basis of the serial identity
of a JapaneseEra object?
