   Did anyone get a response from anyone in Sri Lanka concerning the daylight-
   time situation?

No, but I did some more research, and found a report in a local paper.
(1996-05-24) reported ``the country's standard time will be put
forward by one hour at midnight Friday (1830 GMT) `in the light of the
present power crisis'.''  I'll submit this change as part of my next
proposed patch.  I'll be proposing `LKT' for the new time zone abbreviation;
this is the ISO 3166 country code plus `T'.
