[tz] McMurdo/South Pole

Since McMurdo was not founded until 16 Feb 1956 (wikipedia), I think
that it is simply incorrect data to assign any time-zone transitions
until that date. There simply were no DST transitions in McMurdo in
the 1930s as it did not exist.


This is a a case where an ID that has existed for a long time with
reasonably good data that has now been degraded through a Zone to Link

(I hadn't realised the extent of the data pollution of McMurdo until I
did my recent data analysis)
