Subject: Re coming Russian-Belarusian-Ukrainian timezone change


They say that for denoting the new timezone 
there's FET (further-eastern european time) 
proposal in the works, but this seems Very Bad 
and Confusing English to me.

Please consider denoting the new timezone as 
EEFT (East European Forward Time) -> minimal 
changes in abbreviature and mnemonic, clear 
semantic. Better English, too.
