If we do include the Z, then it needs to not use the XML-RPC date/time
datatype... which come to think of it, means people will have to parse
the date themselves. I think that's a good reason NOT to include the

And come to think of it, adding a timezone field instead of a GMT field
means people will have to parse a timezone, which no XML-RPC library
will help you with. Daniel, I think you were right--we should just do
dateCreatedUtc or whatever instead.
