Fix for this problem.

Proposed patch.  This reflects my understanding of current situation:
 + No DST is introduced
 + The timezone will change from -4:00 to -4:30.  At 24:00 of 23 Sep, the
clocks will move back to 23:30 of 23 Sep
 + New timezone should be called Hora Legal de Venezuela, and the time zone
abbreviation is accordingly HLV.  This is best effort guess, not an official
resolution (as of yet).

I think this can be closed right?
