That said, from a usability point of view, the "Options" page could
really use a link to "About me", particularly in the "Locale" and "Mail"
sections. The separation of display timezone and date format locale
seems really bizarre, and is part of why I didn't find the option; if it
were supported, surely the timezone would be set in the user editor
accessible as admin, or in the Options section? It never occurred to me
to look in About Me.
