[mythtv-users] v30-Pre: Note to Python bindings users with date-time offsets

And by offsets, I mean kludges. Some tools have special switches/options
that adjust for an error in the date-time object. For detail, see:


Existing programs may use a --timezone switch to adjust for timestamps
that are found to be an hour off. The switch could be something other
than --timezone, e.g. --tz. Work-arounds may also be hard coded.

Affected Python programs would have a line similar to this in them:

     from MythTV import datetime

Offsets can likely be removed (the commit was pushed yesterday.) Test affected
tools that use the bindings after removing any offsets once running on commit
ea500ae or above.

Thanks to "rcrdnalor" for the diagnosis and initial patch plus Ian for the
final patch.
