NTP for ASBRs?

Many systems have less than ideal separation of collection, storage, viewing, export, etc. timezones. I prefer to view in local time. I may wish to export in another. Storage in UTC to facilitate all of this makes sense. Normalizing input timezones would be nice.

"deal with the eccentricities of that decision without
foisting your religion on the rest of me"
I clearly mistyped: "me" at the end there with "us"... Your point is
squarely on: Hey, you do you... when you talk to me be prepared to
normalize my TZ and yours.
