Our current servers run in America/Los_Angeles timezone. This includes weird things like DST. We should stop doing this and use UTC instead.

In particular, I suspect that trying to run in PST/PDT on AWS is going to be annoying.

This bug entails figuring out what problems we are likely to run into with this. We already have some time zone handling code. We will probably need to update the data in the database to include timezones, or remap it all to UTC with explicit time zones. There are probably other things.

If we do this, we can probably switch to using USE_TZ=True like covered in bug 878045.
