How many TZDB versions do you want to support?

The HowardHinnant C++ date library (https://github.com/HowardHinnant/date) is the only library that I know that has this feature. I am looking for a second library.
I notice that on MacOS or Linx I can use parent directory (TZ=../.. etc.)
references and/or symbolic links to access a customized version of TZDB
Does that help you?
