Oh, you know, for starters I do. And I like the fact that other programs
using the C library gets the same local time as is displayed on my
panel. This, btw, includes all the existing apps written for GNOME
already; they all, in one way or another, end up using the C library for
this kind of stuff.

Changing /etc/localtime from a desktop app is far from a new concept;
lots of Linux distributions been doing it for years (system-config-date,
yast, many others etc.) the only proposal here is to move all these bits
into an upstream project, GNOME, so all the distributions can share the
maintenance burden and we have deep integration with the desktop.

I'm not exactly sure what we're discussing here or what your point is.
