I heard rumors (from no reliable sources) of a situation where a province
would refuse to change the timezone, but a single city in it *would* change
(thus having a different time than the rest of the province) to match with
a neighbor province that would change along with Bs.As, with which they
have a lot of commerce.

I don't even remember which provinces/cities they were :( Do you have any
info on this?

By the way, how separated is the current tzdata list? Is there *at least*
one timezone per Argentinian province? (I know that some are split further)
