VG Virgin Islands (UK)
VI Virgin Islands (US)
VG +1827-06437 America/Tortola
VI +1821-06456 America/St_Thomas
The southamerica file contains these lines (among other Link lines):
Link America/Port_of_Spain America/St_Vincent
Link America/Port_of_Spain America/Tortola
Putting that all together, the information for the Virgin Islands
(UK and US) is present. However, it might be useful if the
"southamerica" also contained comments giving the country names
and a rationale for the "Link" lines. I know that I like to be
able to search for a country name in the input files.
