Well, you didn't grep hard enough; I just did:

grep '[.H][0-9]' /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo/usno1989

And got 11 part-hour zones, 3 of which apply DST which can be also counted as
separate timezones; plus Russia's East Siberia zone which is 13 hours ahead of
GMT and 14 with DST.  In total, we have 24+12+4 or 40 time zones, 36 of which
are in use somewhere at any given time.
