	We've run all the servers for the NTP Public Services project in 
UTC pretty much as long as we've been at ISC, and I seem to recall 
that pretty much all the machines at UDel do the same.  If a user 
wants to set a different timezone for their personal processes, 
that's trivial to do.  But the machines run natively in UTC.

	Of course, we're weird that way.
