I haven't read POSIX yet, but mktime() fails on the boundary condition
blackholes when timezones change.  I just filed a patch for the
PostgreSQL port so that it deals with this problem.


I believe that Linux and SunOS handle this automatically and am
wondering if FreeBSD should too (this was the 1st time the PostgreSQL
guys had heard of this in over 6 years).  I'm not a daylight savings
expert, but am wondering what other people think.  Seems like a good
idea(TM) to me.  For example (PST/PDT assumed):

2002-4-7 2:0:0.0

should be:

2002-4-7 3:0:0.0

Anyone object or have any thoughts? -sc
