Fixed (we already have a note about it in NOTES section, but it's
somehow pretty hidden at the first glance).

Good point, sounds like user-friendly change (although it is not 100%
backwardly compatible).

William, what about to automatically use -m (start week at Monday)
when --iso specified on command line? It means not keep --iso only
as way to switch calendars, but also as a general option to get 
ISO-8601. (Not sure, may be we already discussed this years ago.)
