It's also similar to how we've been recently handling Palestine's March
transition.  Recently, both transitions seem to be more-or-less pinned to
the last Sunday of the month (*à la* EU rules) so things don't get too
badly out-of-sync, but with the actual change taking place on a
more-locally-favorable day of that same weekend (which is the part that has
been less consistent, of late).

I've installed the attached patch to the commentary since it was left
unchanged despite the improvement to the prediction.
