The timezone changes only affect the display of time in a particular
zone or calculation of absolute time from a zoned form. No
sanely-written daemon works with zoned time values except for
presentation to humans, i.e. logging. Switching the system time zone
(i.e. the offset from GMT to use for presentation of time) does not
change the system time. There is no clock adjustment at a DST change.
