We should document zic's behavior better, yes. As I vaguely recall, it's done
this way on purpose and so is a feature and not a bug. Perhaps Arthur's
less-fallible memory can cite chapter and verse about when and why the behavior
was put into zic.
I gave the documentation a shot by installing the attached patch into the
development version. Further improvements would be welcome.
