unix98's timezone seems infinitely more usable than the current
timezone() implementation, given that timezone() can find multiple
answers. unix98 seems to be the answer to my question, although i
can't say i like the idea of the implementation as an "extern long
int". hmm...research shows that struct tm contains what i'm looking
for, but perl doesn't. *ARGH* thpt.
