Hmm. Couldn't find anything there ...

All I saw was something about tm_gmtoff not being present on Solaris. 
But there's already a workaround for that, isn't there?

I fail to see how apr_implode_time() could /ever/ be wrong if it uses 
tm_gmtoff. Whether that field is set correctly or not is another matter, 
and most probably shows up only on very few platforms. Right now, 
apr_implode_time() is /always/ wrong. Surely it sould be a lesser evil 
to just fix it?
