[Mono-dev] TimeZone/RegionInfo patches

I made a set of patches for a few globalization related stuff.

1) native TimeZone name support. Now it returns native names
as long as they are provided by the locale-builder.

Am also planning to update locale data to the latest version
of CLDR (it has much more timezone names than existing one).

2) TZ environment variable support on Win32. If TZ environment
variable is set, then it uses posix-compat timezone names
(its behavior depends on mingw though).

3) tiny change on RegionInfo.CurrentRegion to construct
apart from CultureInfo. In fact I have further patch to store
it inside Thread (as once Kornel suggested) but it is not
working perfectly now, so I just extracted minimal working part.
(This looks like independent but it shares a function with 1).

Comments are welcome :-)
