I already mentioned this possibility in an earlier message here.  The
problem is that what you actually see in `tzname' could be a localized
name, not the US English name.  So unless someone finds (or crafts) an
exhaustive list of all TZ names both in English and in any localized
language to which each one could be translated by Windows, this will
work only on some machines.
