OK, I found another bug in our code; the output of:
SELECT to_date(' 6 BC', 'CC BC');
returned 501BC, instead of the start of the century, 600BC, like SELECT
to_date('-6', 'CC') does.
I also allowed negative BC dates to map to AD dates, just like negative
AD dates map to BC dates.
Attached is an updated patch and output diff.
