It's notoriously hard to get reliable data for private time zones, and 
I'd rather not try. It's painful enough keeping the public time zone 
info up-to-date. If there's a real call for this data we could put it 
into 'backzone' or a similar file like that, but I don't want us to 
worry about maintaining it.

There are already generic TZ settings like TZ='<+06>-6' and 
TZ='Etc/GMT-6' that support that sort of usage, so we shouldn't need to 
add specific tzdb entries for it.
