Microsoft San Luis "confirmation"

It turns out that Microsoft has acted more proactively than even tz database
or World Time Explorer, in setting
up a page for the San Luis inhabitants that by now will wake up Monday
morning to a new schedule, one hour behind
the rest of the country.
The page about how to change Windows operating systems to accomodate the San
Luis change, however they
don't specify a new timezone, instead the rather more relaxed solution to go
back to either the timezones
"(GMT-3) Buenos Aires, Georgetown" or the intermediate timezone "(GMT-3)
Georgetown" which both represents 
GMT-3 without DST implementation all year round:
The below page recommends how to change the Argentina DST timezone properly
to have the start and end times for
the Argentina-country-wide change effectuated the of December 2007:
At the time of writing it is Sunday 2007-01-20 22:35 CST -0600 and so it
should be 
Monday 2007-01-21 02:35 ADT -0200 in most of Argentina and
Monday 2007-01-21 1:35 SLST -0300 in the San Luis province. (I invented SLST
for San Luis Standard Time,
it is certainly not an official abbreviation!)
Are there any news "on the ground" in San Luis that the change is going
I'll take action tomorrow for WTE if this is the case.
