This is a deceptively complex task. There are around 40 timezones
varying by anything from 15 minutes to 2 hours. And some places 
change timezone throughout the year. Others have multiple daylight 
saving dates etc etc.

Use the force Luke...
If a standrad module exists then its almost certain that more 
thought and debugging has gone into it than you want to expend!
Use what's there and tweak it to suit your needs.
