That doesn't mean that one couldn't use a Unix epoch timestamp: store
the (GMT) post date as a Unix timestamp and store a time zone offset
along with it. Then calculate the local time based on that.

Notice that this wont cost more that what is already done today where
all timestamps are offset by the global gmt_offset setting.
