I'm coming from a similar base using PHP.
ADOdb Date Library provides me with a calendar and time zones back to 100AD and 
daylight saving is now included in the PHP time library, but the complete 
synchronization of both is still work in progress. There is a need for a clean 
date and time 'database' for all users and I see no reason why TZ should not 
provide it? Data is available, so if TZ is not going to manage it, then we need 
somewhere else that will?

I think that while Paul E. may not see a need he is now accepting that others 
do? Hey Paul?
