My correspondent, Risto Nykänen, has alerted me to another adoption of DST,
this time in Tunisia.  According to Yahoo France News
(http://fr.news.yahoo.com/050426/5/4dumk.html), in a story attributed to AP
and dated 2005-04-26, "Tunisia has decided to advance its official time by
one hour, starting on Sunday, May 1.  Henceforth, Tunisian time will be
UTC+2 instead of UTC+1.  The change will take place at 23:00 UTC next
Saturday."  (My translation)

The http://www.worldtimezone.com/daylight.html site says that Tunisian DST
ends September 30.  I was unable to find any confirmation of that date.
