I recently looked at your excellent time package.  However, it 
appeared to me that if someone in a foreign country got a copy
of a machine with this code, that they would have a hard problem 
figuring out what TZ to use, as they are not enumerated in ctime.3
(at least in my copy), nor did there appear to be  any tools to
build such a file from the /etc/zoneinfo directory.

My question is thus:  have you developed a program that walks
the directories, and builds a table of the available entries?

PS:  would you add me to the list of people interested in time?
