We do have to be quite careful about respecting copyright, for obvious 
reasons. However, I've read and used the ideas from the part of the book 
that does not include Lisp code, which is fine. Although the code is the 
heart of the book, all I want is its brain.

Amusingly enough, the book's latest edition has a small time-zone 
section that cites Shanks but not tzdb. Perhaps I should file a bug
