a bounty for irssi programmers

[ #27091 ]

I don't always remember what time zone some people are in, and there are many occasions when knowing this information would be convenient. I propose a bounty:

<statico> I'll give someone a six-pack if they'll write me an irssi
          plugin that lets me associate time zones to hostmasks so the
          user's local time will appear when I /msg them on IRC.
<knewt>   statico: course, then someone irc's in from a box the other
          the world to where they actually are
<ayrnieu> that's why statico will have a /set_tz $nick $tz

Irssi would read in the TZ environment variable or something, then I'd enter a few settings:

/set_tz someguy -800

When I get a private message, I'd like to see:

>>> Irssi: Starting query in FreeNode with someguy
>>> Local time is 8:06 AM
<someguy> honk

I'd be satisifed if the configuration file was a simple file, say ~/.irssi/timezones.
