After studying both pytz and dateutil offerings, I decided that it is
easier to add "fold-awareness" to the later. I created a fork  on
Github and added  fold-awareness logic to the tzrange class that appears
to be the base class for most other tzinfo implementations. I was
surprised how few test cases had to be changed. It looks like dateutil
test suit does not test questionable (in the absence of fold) behavior. I
will need to beef up the test coverage.
I am making all development public early on and hope to see code reviews
and pull requests from interested parties. Pull requests with additional
test cases are most welcome.
