  * summary:  Support for summer time => Support for summer time / DST


 Time is not kept track of well in wp There should only be a post_date, no
 post_date_gmt. Store everything in gmt. Upon install have a little test
 prompt to the user to test if their server supports dst if they would like
 to set there timezone to one with DST then. If it does great otherwise
 fall back to no dst and there timezone. If the server doesn't support it
 you take down a date stamp on which it should move an hour forward and one
 to move an hour back, before display the date it checks whether the date
 is in this interval and adds +3600 to the unix time stamp.

 The difficult part of the patch is more fixing wordpress to deal with the
 time in a logical manner.
