> I find 'later' also acceptable.


We went from something ("first") everyone understood at once, to
something ("fold") that has so far required 3 competing sets of
diagrams and a pile of thought experiments to justify.  The latter was
not a good sign ;-)

But I'd still name it "_later" instead.  It's an implementation detail
required to make some obscure edge cases work right "by magic" far
more than an advertised feature users need to worry about (or even be
aware of).  tzinfo authors need to be acutely aware of it, but since
silence implies assent I take it we all agree now there are only 2 of
those ;-)
