I agree that Paul’s solution of creating a ‘zonecurrent’ file, analogous to ‘zone1970’, would be the best solution from within the tz framework. Any solution that involves further elimination or consolidation of existing zones should be a non-starter. I hope I didn’t write anything that implied otherwise.
