What will you do with the timezone name anyway? On my system it's
"Europe/Stockholm". I'm actually not in Stockholm and there's no useful
information in that string that lets me do anything related to time.

The useful information is in the zone file itself, see e.g.:
zdump -v /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Stockholm
