OK. So what am I doing on the REST API?

1) Send timestamps in local timezone, make extra call for timezone 
2) Send timestamps in UTC (I can cheat because I know Bugzilla's timezone)
3) Send timestamps with timezone information embedded in ISO 8601 style

2) and 3) are a bit more complicated because of summer time. But I'm 
sure there are Perl modules to help me :-)
