Thanks for the heads-up.  I'll propose something like the following
xhtml in my next proposed tz update.  Comments welcome.  (I must
confess that at Twin Sun we've avoided DateTime in our Perl code for
performance reasons -- I didn't know it had tz support these days.)

contains a script <code>parse_olson</code> that compiles
<code>tz</code> source into <a href="">Perl</a>
modules. It is part of the Perl <a
href="">DateTime Project</a>, which is freely
available under both the GPL and the Perl <a
License</a>. DateTime::TimeZone also contains a script
<code>tests_from_zdump</code> that generates test cases for each clock
transition in the <code>tz</code> database.</li>
