It'd surely be nice if this reorg could be propagated to tzcode, in C,
ultimately to wend its way into libc everywhere; forking or independently
reimplementing tzcode carries a maintenance cost, as the tzdata format
isn't quite completely set in stone yet, and as sufficiently clever
legislators cook up sufficiently brilliant schemes to "save daylight", it's
possible tzdata format and tzcode may have to co-evolve again.

Any folks on this list have opinions about how the tzset/localtime api
should best evolve?
