If it's this code:

    "GMT", "BST", 0,
    "EST", "EDT", -5,
    "CST", "CDT", -6,
    "MST", "MDT", -7,
    "PST", "PDT", -8,
    "JST", "JDT", 2,
    (and single letters for all the other standard times)

I don't believe it supports your statement about the original MH
developers' thoughts.

You really want to maintain that?

Good :-)  I agree with Lyndon that we shouldn't.
