Consider, say, webmail. Our webmail login
(http://www.theinternetone.net/cgi-bin/sqwebmail) asks for your local
timezone, so mails you write have the correct Date: header. For this, it must
be able to make all the necessary calculations to convert its local OS
timezone into whatever the user indicates (including winter/summertime). 

So the image should be able to make time calculations with arbitrary
timezones, IMHO.
