Hi all,

I spend a lot of time talking to people in different timezones, and it 
occurred to me that having good (multi-)timezone support is something that 
several KDE apps could benefit from.

I was wondering if there might be interest in having kdelibs support for 
timezones? My thinking is that the immediate need is for something to 
abstract the OS timezone support, this could be built on in individual apps 
(kclock and korganizer's agenda view come to mind), and possibly eventually 
even consider centralised support in kcontrol.

If people think this is auseful idea, I'll start with a KTimezone class and 

Comments solicited.

Thanks, Shaheed
