Oh, bother. I was hoping that my use case was common enough that there was
an option I was just missing.

So it looks like I have to set TZ=UTC and munge the timestamps on insert so
that when I insert at (say) 5:00PM PDT I'm actually inserting 5:00PM UTC.
Handling Daylight Saving will be a pain, though - I'll have to switch
between UTC and UTC+1 (or UTC-1) when generating charts depending on the day
of the year.

Thanks for the confirmation - it'll keep me from going nuts trying to find
an option I'm missing.
