One thing that I noticed because of this change (which is now
irrelevant because of the change) is that the former zone encompassing
the parts of Chihuahua near the U.S. border was named
`America/Ojinaga`, despite Ciudad Juárez being nearly 60 times larger
by population (according to the numbers on Wikipedia) and in general
being far more well-known. Obviously this is no longer relevant with
the splitting of the two into separate zones, but I'm curious if
anyone on this list knows why Ojinaga was chosen as the identifier.
