I think this is the best approach since the timeZoneDetailForDate method is
actually pretty much obsolete: it was removed from Apple's API many years ago.
 In GNUstep we aim to retain backward compatibility for a very long time
(which is why the method is still available), but this method will never have
returned a meaningful result for these future dates anyway, so your proposed
change does not break anything.

It seems a good idea to me.
