I suppose so.  We'll have more of a real problem with Montenegro,
assuming the split with Serbia goes through.

Since the clocks in question have all agreed since 1970, we can use
Link entries to link Europe/London to Europe/Jersey, Europe/Guernsey,
and Europe/Isle_of_Man.  This is what we already did for
Europe/Mariehamn and the Aaland Islands (linking it from
Europe/Helsinki), and is what we probably will do for Europe/Podgorica
and Montenegro (linking it from Europe/Belgrade).

Thanks for the heads-up.
