Well... the easy answer is "whichever one we want".

In fact, the one we have selected is the one that matches where our flights
come from so it's easy to synchronize operations. That means NZST/NZDT,
since our flights come from McMurdo, and their flights come from Christchurch,
NZ (yes, we are at GMT+13 right now, and we _do_ observe daylight savings
time, even though the sun is up 24/7)
