I will be submitting patches to wordpress.org that will revert the
GMT changes and add a new GMT specific field, that does not have the
Z on the end, but will always contain a GMT date/time.
I'll also make these changes to wordpress.com blogs.
I will post here again with references to the tickets on
wordpress.org and when I've deployed the changes to wordpress.com.
