Hey guys
I'm having a few problems with the new TimeZone feature of Rails 2.1.
out that I am on "Brasilia" TimeZone, (UTC - 03:00), BUT my state is NOT
the daylight saving time. And there is no other timezone for my country
this offset from UTC (-3:00) and that does not use DST. So, I would like
do one of these two things:

1) Create a custom time zone


2) Change "Brasilia" TimeZone to, on this specific app, not use the DST.

Is any of these options possible? Is there any other solution for the
(like :use_dst => false, or something like that?)
