Time zone translations (TIMEZONES file)

Anne-Marie has raised an issue with the lack of translations of time zone
comments (displayed by KTimeZoneWidget - right click on the clock applet to
see it). Time zone names (continent and location) are translated via the
kdebase/runtime/kcontrol/locale/TIMEZONES file, but this file doesn't include
the time zone comments from zone.tab, and the widget therefore shows them
Judging by the small number of updates to the TIMEZONES file over the years,
it looks as if it must be manually generated somebody notices that zone.tab
Can one of the updaters say, how is it generated? And is there any reason not
to include comment fields in it? It seems to me that it would be a good idea
to include a little README in SVN to say how this is done, and listing or
pointing to a script to generate it.
