It has a serious problem: there already exits a Jalali calendar that is
different from this calendar we are talking about. It uses the same leap
year rules, but each month is 30 days, with 5 or 6 additional days added
at the end [Mosahab Persian Encyclopedia, Vol 1, Page 657, "taghvim-e
jalaali" entry].
