Oops... Technical correction here: the above is true for the *provinces*
of those names (about 780,000 and 1,450,000 respectively), but for the
*cities* the top three are:
  San Jose  337,000
  Limon      61,000
  Alajuela   48,000

But this just gives more weight to the portion of the argument that says
that choosing a different exemplar city from Costa Rica's time zone
would bend the "largest city" guideline a bit too much to be consisidered
