Well, I think the PHP manual is pretty good about this -- all the pages I've
looked at are careful to add the GMT timezone indicator when referring to
the base date of the Unix epoch, which is pretty much what tipped me off to
the correct interpretation.  (If you find a reference there that doesn't
include the GMT indicator, I reckon that would be worth a bug report in the
Documentation problem category.)
