I've been thinking about this sort of thing too, so I'd be interested in
your ideas.

For instance, if advances in rulesets ever allowed us to merge the
Aqueduct buildings in civ2civ3 into a smaller set, we'd have a problem
with savegames.
(That's "Aqueduct", "Aqueduct, near river", and "Aqueduct, near lake".)

I was thinking of a simple "supersedes" list of rule_names for each
building (etc) that would cause old names in savegames to be converted
to new things; but I haven't thought about it very hard.
