  //! Interface class for dynamic time zones.

   *  representations.  Subclasses may provide different systems
   *  for identifying a particular zone.  For example some may
   *  provide a geographical based zone construction while others
   *  may specify the offset from GMT.  Another possible implementation
   *  would be to convert from POSIX timezone strings.  Regardless of
   *  the construction technique, this is the interface that these
   *  time zone types must provide.

   * Note that this class is intended to be used as a shared
   * resource (hence the derivation from boost::counted_base.
