Here is the reason, why I do not like time conversion:

pub  1024D/57548DCD 1998-07-07 Werner Koch (gnupg sig) <dd9jn at>

This may get listed as -07-08 or -07-06 depending on the timezone.
I think that this could lead to some confusion if two persons list the
key but get different times (yes they are not different really, but it
seems so)

I all other cases a localized time is okay for me.
