I don't think you can reasonably describe the system timezone database as undocumented private data. Plenty of other systems rely on it, as we used to do.

But I take Tom's point about most users not knowing if their TZ database is usable or not. Maybe we need a tool (maybe on pgfoundry) that will do some analysis to find out, if such a thing is possible.

I guess some regression test should test TZ validity?
