Both Magallanes and Santiago will be on UTC -03 for this 2019 scheduled
transition (Santiago shall start DST [-04 to -03] on Aug 11, 2018); so they
will jump back to -04 simultaneously *if they don't change this again* (and
it will jump to "hora oficial" [Santiago] nevertheless that day)

I tested the patch, and it works OK for this year.

Aside, I hope the new official version goes live around Feb. 15 in the
worst case; so downstream providers (and developers) can test this new time
zone without being in a hurry
