As discussed in bnc#554700 I think, it would be a great usability/design plus
if we simplify the UI of date & time module:

OK, first idea for a redesign:
[Icon] Time & Date

Timezone [GMT+1:00(Amsterdam,Berlin,Bern, Rom, Stockholm, Wien)|v]
Time [18:45] Date [12/11/2009]
[ ] Adjust time and date automatically

Cancel or [Save]

Timezone selection would not be split into region and zone anymore.
Usability pros:
* user has to search only once
* conform with user expectation from Windows
* less objects on screen makes orientation easier

Time and Date would in one row and editable, if adjust time and date
automatically is not selected (= manual selection).

If "Adjust time and date automatically" is selected, the time and date is
greyed out and can`t be edited any more, but the actual time is still

"Hardware clock is set to UTC" is skipped as I do not know the use case when
one should turn it off on purpose (seems it makes more sense to have it turned
on by default)

when timezone is selected the corresponding time (& date if possible) is shown
in the time & date fields.
