I have written some software to reduce the "tzdata" files down
to their current GMTOFF values with associated Rule usage.  The
software ends up acting as an integrity check on the database,
i.e. it coughs up current expired Rule usage.  The following
Rules, which are current Rule in the indicated Zones, have all
expired.  How should/are these Zones handled if a user does
a "setenv TZ " of one of them?
