Oh, come on.  How many people in the Netherlands know the official name
of its capital?  How many people not of Dutch origin know what the real
capital is?  And it would seem strange to use that name in the files in
conjunction with "Amsterdam time".  I am quite happy with Europe/Amsterdam,
but that is where I live of course ;-).
