D - timezone

Not really D, but since it is able to interface with C libraries...

When I was writing the daytime server sample in D, I first tried
to use the gmtime() function... and came to the interesting fact
that D sets the _timezone variable according to PST, and _daylight
to 0. I mostly used Borland C++ before, which automatically
retrieves this stuff from the OS and fills the variables with
proper values - in my case, for example, it's GMT+3 and _daylight=1.
Why not do the same in DMC time library?
