[TZInfo-users] more generic names?

Hiya!

TZInfo is back in my life, and that's quite nice.

What I'd like to do is to show the "simpler" names of timezones,
rather than the city name:

EST instead of America/New_York
PST instead of America/Los_Angeles

Is there a way to derive this?

I looked at linked_zones, thinking I could use those, but they don't
appear to link back to the country in question, or the zone that they
link to.

At minimum, from a UI standpoint, it'd be nice to show something like:

EST - New York

Thanks,
Sanjay
