Well, the only 2 use-cases I can see for changing TZs at runtime are:
1) Flight/Travel/Navigation systems, which probably already use UTC for
this reason, and
2) Mobile Apps (and maybe, maybe PC apps running on laptops).  So how
many mobile apps do we think there are based on httpd and how critical
is the timezone (presumably changing at airports, like we just did)?
