  | I don't think it's particularly controversial to say that "the key names
  | should be user-friendly" is not within the scope of this project.

I agree totally with the "not within the scope" -- my point was that what
is "friendly" to one user, is an irritation to others.

I simply could not tolerate any of the options you proposed, I know what
timezone I want, and what its name is, (for any of the various places I am
sometimes located) and I simply want to set it.

As I understand it (not being a MacOS user) the UI that Guy mentioned
requires a GUI for example - something I very often am not using (not
all computers, especially not all on which NetBSD runs, have any kind
of bit-mapped display.   Several systems offer only a text based console.
They still need to be able to set their timezone  -- and consider the
setting for the clocks that have been mentioned in another thread.  I
don't know what hardware that plans on using for its time display, but
digital clocks often just use large 7-segment leds, and analog ones...)
