we certainly aren't going to put it as a seperate checkbox when there's a fine 
list of timezones right there; so you'd suggest something like:

KTimeZones *tzs = KSystemTimeZones::zones();
KTimeZoneWidget *tzWidget = new KTimeZoneWidget(parent, tzs);


this will result in KTimeZone::utc() being in KSystemTimeZones::zones() for 
the rest of the life of the application, correct? so every things in plasma 
will then get UTC in its KSystemTimeZones::zones()? i don't think there's a 
negative to that, it just seems a bit odd. oh well..
