  musl supports the zoneinfo format, according to
  So as long as it does, there's no reason why it shouldn't support
the right/ timezones, which are zoneinfo timezones just like POSIX ones.
  It's just that TAI-10 isn't a widely used setup, so the zoneinfo parsing
code probably hasn't been extensively tested in musl with right/ zones yet.
