[wp-hackers] peculiar problem on setting GMT

Yeah, I keep getting my free time eaten up, but I'll upload what I've  
got... and it wouldn't be much to make it fully workable. The link is:


As I was playing with it, a few things came to mind that it should  
account for:

1 - It needs to take into account daylight savings time, which depends  
both on the time zone and when a particular post was published.
2 - If an author can set one time zone, they ought to be able to set  
multiple time zones (if I move to india, my EST setting won't do me  
any good).
3 - Posts should respect the time zone setting from the time they were  
published, not necessarily the current setting.
4 - I'd like it to hook into pre_option_gmt_offset instead of  
get_the_time like it does now

None of this would be hard, I just haven't had time for it. And if  
anyone has any ideas for improvement, please hack away!
