Yeah, it seems that we are just open to version skew issues between
different copies of the zic database ... which changes enough that
that's a nontrivial risk, but I fear we are unlikely to do better.
In any case, it seems that the arguments about which side is likely
to know more timezone names than the other side are moot; we should
not let that consideration drive the design choice.
