Creating my own l_time() function would work, but it would require
that every installed app on the this site be customized.  Since the
site makes extensive use of OpenSource projects, every time an app is
upgraded it would need to be re-hacked.

If there is no other choice, there is no other choice. But in a
perfect world, there would be a way to locally correct the server
time on a global basis and thus correct ALL applications -- present
and future -- that need to know the "local" time.
