There is a separate issue #5288 asking to support sub-minute offsets. This is not hard, but the C code still has a few interfaces left from the time when offset was an integer # of minutes. I am +1 to fix that, but not as a part of this issue.
On str(tz), I definitely want an invariant str(tz) == tz.tzname(None). I am open to changes to tzname(), but we are very close to bikesheding here. Let's settle for 'UTC±HH:MM'. This seems to be the most common spelling for numeric timezones in various tables on the web.
