Docs and tests!  Yah :)

Only real nitpick I can see from a quick glance is that
 KTzfileTimezoneData,  KTimezoneData, and KTimezoneSource, don't have a 
private class.

With the tests if you can convert them to use qttestlib that would be 
appreciated.  qttestlib has an xml output format which is very usefull for 
generating reports from.
