Not sure if I understand the question properly, but if you want to cleanup
current FAQ by moving references to problems only relevant for very old
version to some other place, the OS/2 related one doesn't need any special
exception as long as you keep the current version there - "1.0.6 and
higher" is still applicable for the latest versions, because the
requirement for TZ environment variable comes from unzip.dll which is
still used.
