[TZInfo-users] selection of select popup based on browser timezone?

First off, thanks so much for doing this.  It just dropped in.  It
made me happy in the way that ruby itself does.

My question is:

I'm using this line to create my selection popup

<%= time_zone_select 'user', 'time_zone',
     TZInfo::Timezone.us_zones, :model => TZInfo::Timezone %>

Is there some clever way to have it default (if otherwise unset) the
the TZ reported by the browser?  I know that there is javascript out
there to grab the TZ info (or at least an offset).  it'd be slick if
the top n entries corresponded to possible (correct) timezones.


The world tends to work out for me.  I try to give it reason to.
