Thanks.  I'd like to mention this in tz-links.htm but I'm at a bit of
a loss as to how to characterize it.  Is it a copy of the tz database,
or a tz compiler, or some combination of the two?  Clearly your
approach differs from that of the Python time zones project
<> but I can't easily put my finger
on the difference.

For example, pytz-2004a.tar.bz2 contains a lot of files saying
"Generated from the Olson timezone database" but I don't see a copy of
the program used to generate those files.  Surely this is an important
part of the project.
