What he said. In hopes of seeing what the devs have to say about it,
I searched the dev list for "daylight savings", "DST", "standard
time", and "UTC". These searches found a grand total of three posts
whose subject lines looked like they might be related to this. None
of those three turned out to be related when I read their bodies.
The freedoms that we enjoy presently are the most important victories of the
White Hats over the past several millennia, and it is vitally important that
we don't give them up now, only because we are frightened.
