Plus, the older plugin (according to the description) was setting the 
time zone to the server's time zone, which is not appropriate for a 
lot of people. We don't necessarily host in the same time zone as we'd 
like the blog to display.

I would like to add my enthusiastic YIPPEE to Otto for attempting 
this, by the way. Time zones and daylight savings rules are EXTREMELY 
complex. I've done some programming with them before, and it's NOT 
easy to get right. Maybe there's enough in the core of PHP to support 
them in an easy way (haven't looked into it recently), but if not, 
good luck!
