Right, I checked the RFC and noted that it does not seem to say
anything about what time zone to use. So, I thought we should be
consistent in what we return. However, I do not have a strong opinion
on this matter. Could we confirm what other FTP servers do, do they
return different time zones for LIST and MLST? I just checked a few
servers and the only one that supported MLST returned different
results (since I know its local time zone I also confirmed that LIST
returned in the local time zone and MLST in UTC).

Right, however it does not seem like we nor the RFC has made any
commitments as to what time zone to return. So, to me I would rather
see us conform to how the majority of other FTP server behave. Of
course, these might not be contradictory :-)
