Do X for n days

For production commands, such as stone mining and recruiting:

The current proposed syntax is:

use X [days] [max]

Which works for the specified number of days, or until max amount
is obtained.

I want to remove the ability to specify days, and set it at some
reasonable default, such as the current seven days for recruit, or
14 days for mining or forestry.

The command would still quit after producing max amount, so you could
put a cap on production.

I know none of the playtesters will support this idea, but the question
is -- can they live with it?
