From, we should do the 
followings to make this class clearer.
1. Change the class name
2. Hide TimeSetting class since it is not meant to be called by others.
3. Add some documents about this class.
Thanks a lot for taking this bug from my rant, Steven!
According to my dictionary, the canonical spelling is "time zone", so this should be TimeZoneSettingObserver.  :)
Thanks Justin and Steven for addressing this! Please feel free to let me know if I can take this one to refine TimeSetting since I was the original designer of that.

Btw, the original TimeSetting design is following the AutoMounterSetting, which could be another bad naming or class if it is also served as an observer and should not be exposed to public.

Both patches have the same checkin comment, which isn't good.  The checkin
comment should explain what this particular patch does.  (Unless you're going
to fold the patches together when you check them in?)

Nit: Adding trailing whitespace here.

I can't figure out where the "Init" comes from in this name.  Would
TimeZoneSettingCallback or TimeZoneSettingCb be a better name?

>+static mozilla::StaticRefPtr<TimeZoneSettingObserver> sTimeZoneSettingObserver;

Everything in this file which shouldn't be accessible to other files (which I
think means everything above this line) should be in an anonymous namespace, so
it doesn't get exported into mozilla::system.

Can you please attach a patch which has a proper rename in the diff?  This is important not only for readability during review, but also for keeping our hg log sane.

If you're in git, this can be accomplished with |git diff -M -C| (or maybe git diff -M25 -C25, tweaking the numbers until it detects a rename).

If you're in hg, you need to explicitly hg rename the file, or I think hg addremove -s might help.
