I think that the 2016e change is not actually relevant to us; it's just
introducing a no-op DST transition into the data files in 2037.  If our
version of zic were being used to produce zone files that Qt would read,
it might be important, but that seems pretty unlikely.  So we should sync
it eventually but I'm not in much of a hurry.
