Except, this sort of rewriting loses information too.  Eg, you can't
tell if -0700 is MST or PDT in the US.  But of course, using anything
other than +nnnn becomes an awkward maintenance problem.

Aren't people supposed to be encouraged to use "-0700 (MST)" for
timezone format?  I haven't been paying attention.
