Bug Description

Inspired by bug 1752753, it would be nice if the library settings editor presented a list of valid timezone names for the user to choose from when setting the lib.timezone org unit setting.

(This would probably be part of a larger, hypothetical project to make a new Angular library settings editor be smarter and more usable.)

Note: we have the list of available timezones in JS via moment.tz.names(), which returns an array of known, valid timezone names.

I'm adding documentation tags, since we should at least give people a clue of the input format in the setting name or description, and the docs. (I found myself guessing at "EST", or "-5:00"...).

Maybe we could point people to Wikipedia for now:
