Actually...  I was looking at the WinRT Calendar docs [1] the other
day and was rather shocked to read the GetTimeZone method returned
"The identifier from the IANA Time Zone Database that identifies the
time zone that is used by this Calendar object. (An example is
"Americas/Los_Angeles" for Pacific Time.)".  Does anyone know If
they've just adopted the IDs using a translation table, or are
actually using the database?
