No part of that includes the maintenance of zone.tab at all, which is,
broadly, a recommendation of which of the zones we maintain should be
presented by default for non-technical end-users to select from. There
is no fundamental reason that recommendation should include timezones
that are redundant in the present time, solely on the basis of them
having differed 40 years ago.
