"Summary: my discomfort with our timezone design motivated
me to implement a new one. "

At first, I thought you meant to redesign the timezone system itself!

Not that it would be a bad idea.. timezones originally came about during 
railroading's heyday, if I am not mistaken, and were designed to 
solve  problems for that particular technology; it may, in fact, be time 
for the world to give thought to re-inventing how we deal with time. That, 
however, would have to be taken up by another Working Group :-).
