If we interpret the decree modification as written, Magallanes is scheduled to
change from -03 to -04 on 2019-05-11 at 24:00, which will be one hour after
Santiago is scheduled to change from -03 to -04. Surely this is not intended.
For now, it's simpler to assume the change will be permanent, or at least as
permanent as anything regarding clocks in Chile. Proposed patch attached.
I've installed this patch into the development repository on GitHub, and anybody
who needs the Magallanes change now can use that repository. I'm reluctant to
generate a new tz version just for this, as it's far enough in the future that
it's likely we'll need to generate a new release for other reasons anyway.
