This affects Anki syncing. I had to set my Pandora's /etc/localtime to a city instead of GMT+/- for it to sync properly. Otherwise it would return that my clock is off and cancel the sync.
Also, Gentoo's manual says this:
Please avoid the /usr/share/zoneinfo/Etc/GMT* timezones as their names do not indicate the expected zones. For instance, GMT-8 is in fact GMT+8.
It may be as simple as swapping the sign on the GMT value while keeping the displayed date constant. Even so, this would generate counterintuitive output for the "date" command... City-based timezones are best, imo.
