I am in the Netherlands, which is GMT+1, though with the dst it would
be GMT+2.  I see this:

>>> from DateTime import DateTime
>>> DateTime(0)
DateTime('1970/01/01 01:00:00 GMT+1')

I see the same problem in a Plone Product of mine (eXtremeManagement)
where bookings added after the DST get listed a day earlier in one
page template.  When I add a booking somewhere in November (I can
choose the booking date) that one gets listed fine again.

I am wondering what should be done.  I *think* I can fix my own Python
Script that is responsible for this now I know that DST is involved.
I want to move to a browser view anyway.

But does this point to a deeper problem?  Does something need to be
fixed in CMF or Zope?

In other words: does this just go wrong in a few isolated places that
need to be fixed individually or does this need a fix in one deeper
