Consider tzlocal as part of pytz. It is Lennart's work, designed to
work with pytz and would have been part of it except I felt it better
to keep the scope narrowly defined. tzlocal.get_localzone() will load
the correct dst aware local IANA zoneinfo file wherever it is defined
on the platform, and I believe also gets you a working local dst aware
tzinfo on Windows.
