Sorry, I should have stated the problem more clearly.  The problem is
deciding which administrative regions correspond to which tz Zone
entries.  This will require consulting Shanks.

I'm actually a bit skeptical of Shanks in this area.  Shanks is the
best source I know here, but I'd much rather have a Chinese source of
historical time zone data.  I've heard that astrology is popular in
China, so I'd expect this info to be written down _somewhere_; but I
don't know where.

It probably hasn't gotten past the moderator yet.  I was also sent the
email directly, which is why I saw it earlier.
