Well, it's certainly hopeless to expect "patch" to fix it :-(.  But the
further the code drifts the harder it gets to compare manually.

This isn't an academic concern; I went through it once already, and I
expect we'll want to do it again every release cycle when we sync the
zic database with upstream.
