Re: New clock applet for 2.22

I am still unsure as to why there even needs to be a concept of "system time". "System time" should just be UTC, surely.

If anonymous things like GDM need a local time to present to the user, then we should point it at a configurable user profile. This could serve for font settings etc., too.

Sounds like a nice feature, but won't it be a little confusing if it
is a clock-applet-only feature, while the rest of the desktop (e.g.
the evo calendar) run off the system timezone ?
