OK, it's just David Faure wasn't keen on ripping the working Solaris
code out of ktimezoned unless Qt had replacement code.  Now we know
that Qt 5 at least builds we'll try leave the old code in KDE for now.
 I think it's mostly just different paths to the TZ files, but the
zonetab file format may be a little different too, so I don't want to
do it blind.
