I don't think it's unreasonable to expect software and people to keep 
track of which timezone is in use, whether it's an email client or a 
tracking program.

And if they can't do that right, asking them to set their PC clock to 
zulu time isn't going to help, because they're not going to get that 
right either. :-)
