I knew someone would suggest that. :)

Personally, I think that's pretty gross: it's encoding a real-world event (e.g. I moved into a different time zone) as a reflective object mutation event, rather than just building an API at a more intuitive level of abstraction. But I suppose if it works without having to actually standardize anything, then it just works.
