In this particular case, the user had not read the manual, and didn't
even know one existed.  That would be a problem no matter what format
we had chosen.

Perhaps we could forestall future questions like this by starting each
data file with a line saying "The format of this file is described in
<http://www.twinsun.com/man/zic.8.html>."  or something like that.
