I wouldn't use it. I am already updting multiple calendars, wondering
why I can't just "import event from XYZ". Dealing with timezones - I
don't think so.
Ask the first-time visitors "What time is it for you right now ?" and
store that as a cookie.
Optionally get user's time zone from Launchpad if logged in. (not sure
if LP has timezone info).
I think Drupal does it like that and some forum websites too.
