Alois ... the rule is that only changes after 1970 are managed, so like a number 
of other recent correction/improvements to existing pre 1970 data, this will not 
be allowed through. We do need a better way of managing pre-1970 history as it 
is important, but currently iana tz is not going to provide that.

I have set up http://timedb.co.uk/ as a base to allow recording of all of the 
pre-history stuff, but other activity to keep on top of other upgrades has been 
eating up all my spare time. If people have pre-1970 material then copy it over 
to me and I'll create pages for it as a starting point.
