Amen.  I had my Amigas set to GMT even before I knew anything about NetBSD.
I didn't want to move the time forward and backward twice a year.  Please
don't change anything in NetBSD - I want it to work like it does.  Besides,
many people who run NetBSD don't run AmigaOS on the same machines, anyway,
so writing a kludge would only make things worse for them.

It works - don't touch it. :-)
