I suspect it would be easiest to let the logger choose.  If that is the 
case, I would probably prefer that information as to GMT or local be 
given somewhere in the log.  A reference to time zone in the log preamble 
or including the zone stamp next to the time reference, 1304GMT.  If no 
reference is given to the time zone, there is a problem if we combine 
logs in an analysis.
