EST, CST, etc., are not unique to America, and mean different things
elsewhere.  By themselves they're a worse than useless term, though
America/EST could be understandable.  But then are you going to list
America/EST+DST, or separately list the daylight savings?

Listing countries and states does get around various issues, such as:

      * Specific locations that are not part of a general common zone.
      * Specific locations that treat daylight savings differently.
      * Users who don't know what the name of their timezone, or about
        daylight savings rules, can set things correctly just by picking
        the location that they're in.

I do wonder how many times you need to make a choice from such lists
that it's actually a problem for you.

Short summary of a long thread on here not that long ago:  It *never*
installed "everything".  It *can't*, since some packages are mutually
exclusive.  So the naming was misleading, and you'd get even more
complaints if it said "install almost everything".

Having said that, there could be better ways of selecting large groups
of, or most, packages.

(Currently testing FC5, but still running FC4, if that's important.)
