I check current translations, just in case, but several of them use
transliterated text, for instance:

ru.po:msgid "East Indiana"
ru.po-msgstr "Восточная Индиана"

So these translators also might want to transliterate the city names
in the new "time zones"....and we just can't put msgid's in msgstr's

At the minimum, if we add new timezones, we could grab translations
back from tzdata (there are quite a lot of translations in that package).

Definitely something for post-lenny, indeed...sorry for the few
counties in USA that decide to live differently from the rest of the

Actually, there might me other cases like this one as I haven't seen
anyone actively trying to cope with changes in tzdata to align tzsetup
with them (such as the recent nightmare in Argentinian timezones).
