  australasia:    8.3 -> 8.4       8.5 -> 8.6
  From Paul Eggert's comments:
  Changes that affect near-future time stamps:
    * Western Australia starts DST on December 3.  (Thanks to
      Jesper Norgaard Welen for the initial warning, and to Christopher Hunt
      for letting us know it was official.)
      This patch migrates the WA DST idiosyncracies into Rule lines,
      where they probably belonged anyway.  I realize the official
      legislation specifies dates rather than "Mar lastSun", but we
      commonly reverse-engineer the underlying rules in other situations
      and might as well do so consistently here.
  Changes affecting location data only:
    * The coordinates for Jersey and Podgorica were off.
      (Thanks to Andy McDonald for noting this.)
