You could search the fpc and lazarus mailing list; I know there've been
posts regarding this.
IIRC, the conclusion was that doing this is potentially very difficult
to do cross platform, keeping daylight saving changes etc in mind.

There is a separate unit that deals with this, IIRC, the wiki mentions
it somewhere..
