Thanks for the heads-up.  I'm inclined to put in a "max" rule for now,
reasoning by analogy from earlier Haitian experiments with DST.  (I
have little experience with Haitian politics so I have no idea what
they will do next year.)

I'll put this in my next proposed change, which I guess will have to
be very soon, given that Haitian time stamps are wrong right now in
the tz database.
