In support of bug 633, we should kill off the references to /etc/TIMEZONE in our code -- it turns out that this is just a legacy symbolic link to /etc/default/init. While /etc/TIMEZONE was documented, its unlikely that this was ever widely used outside of the ON consolidation, and any site can easily drop a symlink to restore this if they need it.
However, there are tools in ON that read /etc/TIMEZONE instead of /etc/default/init, and those should be updated to use /etc/default/init.
Then the TIMEZONE.4 manual can be removed/renamed. (This doesn't solve the devpost font problems with case folding, but those can be handled separately.)
