| Are there any systems out in the wild now where setting the TZ
| environment variable to US/Pacific-New does something different than
| setting it to US/Pacific?
Note that report was from 1992 - back then they probably were different.
Anyone running on 1992 timezone data today is going to have far worse
problems than that one, so I don't think we really need to worry about it.
The zone name has to remain like all historical ones, for the people who
have been using it - so the requests to make it vanish are never going to
happen (if we "deleted" it, it would just move from a file of its own
into the "backward" file, which hardly seems like a change worth making).
Just ignore the noise and let us all return to pondering what happens next
in Brazil or Argentina ...
