Well, yes. The time CVS uses is UTC, as it must be in any app which is
expected to be used noone knows from, so that's just OK.
But... I can't see why it is such a daunting task convert GMT to any
other local time; just operate with local drift.  First that comes to my
mind (first, not best for sure) is having that drift as a delta between
`date` and `date -u` outputs.
