I'm just a bit confused about %Z, because it seems to me that the
documentation contradicts the test.

Here's the doc change:

> +instead it prints just the current zone (@code{tzset} above).

Here's the test:

> +  (pass-if "strftime %Z doesn't return garbage"
> +    (let ((t (localtime (current-time))))
> +      (set-tm:zone t "ZOW")
> +      (set-tm:isdst t 0)
> +      (string=? (strftime "%Z" t)
> +                "ZOW")))

The doc seems to be saying that (strftime "%Z" tm) will ignore TM's
zone, but the test makes it look like (strftime "%Z" tm) uses TM's
zone.  Am I misunderstanding?
