It'd be better not to hard code a system name.  Is there some way to
test which of the two works?

Or is there a TZ designation that works everywhere - say, expressed as
an offset from UTC?

CET is used in srfi19.test to check if the offset is correct during summer time. That check won't work if the offset is specified in the environment variable TZ.

There's no common synonym for CET but the time zone EST5EDT seems to work on GNU/Linux, Solaris, HP-UX and Mac OS X. I'll ask a friend to check EST5EDT on AIX (by running the command "TZ=EST5EDT date"). The offset to UTC is -4 hours during summer time.

A patch for srfi-19.test that uses EST5EDT instead of CET is attached.
