I am not directly dependent on tz, but I can't help to observe it worked 
very well before IANA was somehow involved. I wish we had kept our trust 
with what had proven to work.

This is trivial to solve. Just call what Paul does "official" and be 
done with it. The whole thing hangs together because he is here, not 
because IANA is involved. What value did they add?

Thanks Paul for all your work (and ado before that, and all the 
contributors), and sorry we imposed IANA on you.
