  From Paul Eggert's comments:
  * Egypt switches the September 7, not September 28.  Thanks to Dirk
    Losch for this.
  * Daviess, Dubous, Knox, Martin, and Pike Counties, Indiana, switch
    from central to eastern time in November.  This results in a zone
    split, and a new entry America/Tell_City is created for Perry County,
    which does not switch zones in November.
  * South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, and New South Wales are changing
    their DST rules effective next year.  DST will end the first Sunday in
    April at 03:00 and start the first Sunday in October at 03:00.  Lord Howe
    Island has a similar change.
  * Several Antarctic station's rules weren't properly updated to account
    for this year's change to the New Zealand daylight saving rules.
  * In (sorry, I don't recall who sent in these changes):
  ** Dumont-d'Urville is a station, not a base.
  ** Correct the coordinates for Aruba, Cambridge Bay, London, Johnston.
  ** Give alternate spellings for Zaporozhye.
  * Add spelling notes for Kiev, Uzhgorod, Zaporozhye.
    (Sorry, I forgot who wrote this.)
  * Identify American time zone boundaries more carefully.
    (Sorry, I forgot who sent this in.)
  * Improve historical notes for Howland, Baker, and Jarvis.
  Additionally, this commit updates the "leapseconds" file to incorporate the
  most recent International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS)
