  | Why "CST" is not defined above
  | when CST6CDT *is* is beyond me, by the way - compare to EST and EST5EDT.


  | # We limit the list to names that have appeared in previous versions of
  | # this time zone package.

which explains that.   Why CST never existed as a separate zone in the
past when the others did is a different question, which now is really no
longer important - it is just a fact with which we need to deal.
