Someone -- Ian J. I think -- once fielded a package which set up
a default /etc/papersize with a guess based on the system's timezone.
Seemed like a neat idea to me.  I wonder if all of the Americas
use U.S. papersizes.  I think Asian countries generally use U.S.
sizes as well.  Does Africa use European papersizes?  How about
the Mideast?

Hmmmm.... ex Soviet block, Asia, Mideast, and Australia share
timezones.  Maybe it's not so neat a solution after all.
