      I think my point may have been that you can't go directly from GPS-to-
      offset, you'll need some sort of lookup table (which must be kept
      updated) of GPS-to-region because time zone lines wander and such.

      Right, I understand Antarctic stations use Z or something (their
      national offset?), but I could be very wrong.
