Sorry, you knew that already ;)

Here's my second (possibly also useless) contribution to this thread.

I noticed the Python distro carries TCL/TK and, while looking for
something else, found its tzdata directory[1].

I looked in TCL repository and found this maintenance tool for
updating their internal data.

http://tcl.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/tcl/tcl/tools/tclZIC.tcl?revision=1.2.2.6&view=markup

It looks tidy, so I'm posting for the TCL fans, on here.
