] I personally don't care whether Cyprus is considered part of Asia or part of
] Europe.  However, it might be considered a politically sensitive question,
] since control of the island is currently split between Turkish Cypriots and
] Greek Cypriots.  Therefore, I think the tz archive should follow standard
] geographical practice.

Let me add another one.
The United Nations' Statistical Division lists Cyprus as being part
of Western Asia (like Turkey), not Southern Europe (like Greece).
