	/usr/share/misc/ - a file that's simply copied from a
	file in /usr/src/share/misc - contains some broken two-letter
	abbreviations.  Specifically:
		- AK is given for Arkansas, for area code 501
		- QT (!) is given for Quebec, for 514
		- PQ is given for Quebec, for 819, 450, and 418
		- YT is given for "Yukon/Northwest Territories" (867),
		  though it is correct only for the Yukon.
	There is also no hint of the existence of Nunavut; I'm not
	including a fix for that, since I'm not sure what area code(s)
	it should be listed under (and am not sure what its two-letter
	abbreviation is, thokugh NU is the only sane option I see).  A
	friend who usually knows what he's talking about says Nunavut
	probably includes pieces of 819, 709, and 867.
	Relative to ",v 1.13":
