I've tried it again and it worked. The first time I did it, I think I
didn't see any effect, but I was reading the binary files myself where I
might have made a mistake. Now that I have my binary file reader in C#,
I can see transition times up until 2099 or whatever I set in zic.c.

I just need to polish it a bit so I can publish all of it on my website
for those interested.
