This script allows updating Lightning's zones.json.
  python --vzic /path/to/tzurl/vzic --tzdata /path/to/latest/tzdata

You can also have the latest tzdata downloaded automatically:
  python --vzic /path/to/tzurl/vzic

IMPORTANT: Make sure your local copy of zones.json is in sync with Hg before running this script.
Otherwise manual corrections will get dropped when pushing the update.
