> The confusion comes because in typical English usage 'GMT-4' often means 4 hours behind GMT. My impression is that the Etc/* zones are best avoided in applications that use time zone abbreviations.

Makes sense.  Though I believe Etc/GMT-4 and its cousins are in wider use than you might think.

Do you think it might help if we also had zones like Etc/UTC+4 that had the sign in the common direction?  Just a thought.
