    It's a fairly simple configuration change, the patch is barely even
    needed.

    On current versions of PalmOS, you just need to go to the Time & Date
    settings page, edit the appropriate location, you can change when DST
    starts / ends.

    I recall roughly the same existing back on one of my earlier Palms, I
    believe even my IIIe.

    Agreed it is simple to do but tedious in that you need to update for
    each US city and time zone. Presumably, the update will do it for all
    locations in one go.

    While true, most people only need to update the one zone that they use.
