Use of timestamps in otp

P9C contains a new function

No problem with that but nn interesting observation is that there is
no unambiguous tranformation of local_time -> universal_time. For
universal_time -> local_time there is.

I think that all parts of the system (i.e. sasl logging and snmp)
should always generate time stamps in universal time and then convert
to local time if requested by the user.
Today the behaviour is the the opposite (timestamps are generated as
local time) and it is not correct.

Any comments ?
