Well, the problem is exactly that there is no "same data source"
anymore: the local DBA can customize the timezone list all he wants.

We could document what the out-of-the-box settings are, but is it
really useful to duplicate that info in the SGML docs?  We don't
for example provide a copy of psql \df+ output in the SGML docs,
and I'm wondering if this isn't kind of the same animal.
