But seriously, it would be like good government: invisible when it works. If
it's broken, then it might be glaringly obvious.

For example, when I send mail from my AOL account, it is very annoying to see
it time-stamped for Virgina, even though I am sending it from California.
Throws things all off.

Also, even IRC has the CTCP Time command to get the local time of a person in
an IRC room. For international discussions, I find that quite handy.
