BTW, maybe this is a silly question, but I don't know the answer and
have never tried it:

If an application is running and using e.g. glibc to get a particular
time zone information: are the changes detected automatically at runtime
and become effective for the application when a new version of the TZ DB
is installed, or only after the application or run-time library is reloaded?
