This does sound like an excellent plugin idea.

The blog has its own time zone, but each User has a setting for time  
zone (including "blog default").  Posts are displayed with the  
*blog*'s time zone.  Perhaps the plugin should also add some means for  
Theme authors to also show the author's local time on a post.
