Subject: Modifications in Uruguay time zone

According to a new decree, from now on, Daylight Saving Time in Uruguay
will start the first sunday of october, at 2:00 local time, and will end
the second sunday of march at 2:00 local time

That is, from the first sunday of october to the second sunday of march,
Uruguay will be at UTC-2

You can see it (in spanish) at

I think the rules to add to the zoneinfo files would be the following
(please correct as necessary)

Rule    Uruguay 2006    max    -       Oct    Sun>=1       2:00   1:00
Rule    Uruguay 2007    max    -       Mar    Sun>=8       2:00   0
