[p4] Proxy time and sync time on files.

The proxy doesn't affect the transaction. If your client spec has 
"nomodtime" in the options (the default), the file time will be the time 
of the sync in the client machine's time. If your client spec has 
"modtime" in the options, the file time will be the time of the 
changelist in the server's time.

I don't know how the time discrepancy would affect the proxy's caching 
mechanism, but I believe it will have no effect unless you change the 
proxy's actual time (not time zone).
