I know this is not a major issue, but it has been a nagging one: there is
often a disagreement between subject and verb when a message is produced
about something happening to a unit.  "Your Warriors was disbanded..."; the
subject is plural and the verb is singular.  Ultimately the problem seems to
be due to some unit names having a plural form and others having a singular
form.  We could do some complicated parsing to get the verbs to match, or we
could simply get all the unit names to agree.  For instance if Warriors was
changed to Warrior, the problem here would be solved and i don't think it
would create a new problem elsewhere.
