Comment (by r-a-y):

 `02.patch` introduces `bp_core_strtotime()` to ensure that the timestamp
 is indeed UTC.

 There are some other things that I could use feedback on.

 * The admin dashboard uses a mixture of the localized date/time format and
 UTC dates.
    * Activity dashboard index uses the localized timezone, whereas when
 you edit an activity item in the dashboard, the timezone is UTC.
    * I mirrored this behavior for the Groups dashboard as well for now,
 but we should probably stick to UTC to avoid confusion.
 * I didn't touch the XProfile datebox fields because that probably doesn't
 need to be converted to UTC.
