 As of 0.22, mythweather displays six 3-hours periods in the 18-hour
 forecast. Each period is labeled with a timestamp like '4 PM'

 This is actually problematic for me, and also many other over here. We are
 used to 24 hours clock, and each time I see a PM/AM I need to doublecheck
 what it means.

 Time should be presented in user's locale, as weekday already is in the
 3-days/6-days forecast IMHO. I don't really see a need for a user
 preference, using the standards locale stuff should be sufficient(?).

 This might or might not affect the grabber interface. In the long run, it
 means that myth needs to parse the data instead of displaying it as-is.
 Parsing is much simpler if the time value becomes more specified, not just
 a string as today.
