> DateRangeField has some issues for dates before 1582 (the Gregorian Change Date), following
Solr 6.  The main problem is that it uses DateMathParser which no longer observes a GCD and
then it converts that Date to a Calendar using Calendar.setTime(date) which considers the
GCD.  We can't altogether avoid as in SOLR-9080 because DateRangePrefixTree
currently fundamentally depends on it.  However I recently learned we can simply change the
GCD like so: {{cal.setGregorianChange(new Date(Long.MIN_VALUE));}} beforehand.  DateRangeField
also calls Calendar.getTime as well, which is affected by GCD considerations.
> For users that use DateRangeField but do *not* use "Date Math" and do not have 'Z' in
their date strings then date strings are completely parsed by DateRangePrefixTree and there
should be no issue.
> DateRangePrefixTree ought to be improved a bit too (in a separate issue)... like making
the GCD configurable, and setting using SimpleDateFormatter.setCalendar it uses to format.
