    * Use `2:00s' consistently for Australia and NZ instead of `2:00'/`3:00',
    since the relevant legislation (at least in NZ) specifies standard time.

Same in Australia.   This is a no-op change though of course
(just changes the notation).   It was 3:00 rather than 2:00s
in the first place as the data precedes the existance of the
's' suffix.   Apart from that, we think of it in general as
being 03:00 when DST turns off (and goes to 02:00), rather than
it turning off at 02:00 standard time.
