Maybe an "interesting timezones" feature/setting would be useful in GNOME, so that other apps can join in the fun of multi-timezone awareness, with just one central place to configure it.
Or do you think such a feature should only pertain to a clock? Anyone have any more use cases?
Gnome-System-tools Network profiles and/or NetworkManager could be timezone aware, for example, if I'm on the network "Home" I'm at Canary Islands, but if I'm at the office, I'm at Dublin.
The weather applet might be use it too, right now it only uses a plain tree view.

Since everybody is making proposals for 2.22, here is my contribution:
we should merge the clock applet with the intlclock that Novell has written.David and I have done some further work on it to support timezone
setting and weather information, the current status of which you can see here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/FeatureClockAppletThis is using new technologies that have appeared lower in the stack, like DBus system bus activation and PolicyKit, and can serve as good
example for how to integrate these into the desktop.We want to do some more work on it in the Gnome 2.22/Fedora 9 timeframe, as is explained on the wiki page.
