[tz] [PATCH 2/3] * zone.tab (America/Shiprock): Remove.

Derick didn't mention US/Mountain; I'm pretty sure he was referring to the
country/region code US.  I believe he is saying that removing this entry
from zone.tab undoes the mapping between the America/Shiprock alias and the
US country code.

I was initially concerned by this change as well, but as it seems that
other aliases listed in backward do not appear in zone.tab, I don't think
it's an issue.  I think it's safe to say that aliases are presumed to be
part of the same country/region that their linked zone is part of.  (All
the more reason NOT to alias across country borders, if you ask me...)
