I now see that I misread this question: I read it as it was about the
hack as it is implemented now and how I know that the hack works with
non-fixed holidays, not about my comment about the non-implemented
dynamically sized calendar.

The answer to the question above is: I don't know, and that is why I
wrote that I had to specifically test for it if it were implemented,
for instance in the way that RMS wrote in

That supports the point I was trying to make.  Since this feature is
not implemented I do not have to bother with it in the modified code -
as the current calendar is static.
