Amazing how it works, this book hasn't been mentioned
for weeks and now we get two in one day...

continue until => a while loop.
( It actually implies a repeat/until loop but Python
hasn't got one of those!)
> year = input ( " Type in a year(0 to stop):" )
> if julian_leap (year):
> print year, "is leap"
> print year, "is not a leap year"
year = input ( " Type in a year(0 to stop):" )
Thats it - 2 new lines and one minor modification.
Using zero to stop is fine coz 0 is never a valid year...
