This can be handled by formatting the printable representation of time 
appropriately (either by conversion to local time, given the current 
timezone information, or, if no timezone information is available, by 
appending a "(UTC)" suffix to the time data).
I'd prefer that this is done in the default routines for converting to 
printable representation, but if this isn't possible due to 
compatibility considerations, a readily usable conversion function would 
be a good second best option. (If such a function doesn't already exist.)

Regards,
Jo
