+=head2 Use date or time objects with the database?
+On your columns, specify either
+    filters are 'Jifty::DBI::Filter::DateTime'
+for a timestamp (date and time), or
+    filters are 'Jifty::DBI::Filter::Date'
+for just a date. Jifty will then automatically translate to and from
+DateTime objects for you when you access the column on your
+model. Additionally, if you add:
+    filters are qw(Jifty::Filter::DateTime Jifty::DBI::Filter::Date)
+Jifty will inspect the model's
+L<current_user|Jifty::Manual::AccessControl> for a C<time_zone>
+method, and, if it exists, set the retrieved DateTime object's time
+zone appropriately. All dates are stored in UTC in the database, to
+ensure consistency.
 =head2 Emulate 'created_on' field like Rails ?
 In Rails, if you have a field named 'created_on', it's automatically
