Where are you? Timezone selector should use locale time-format

Bug Description

When using the timezone selector, it tells me at the bottom that the:

  Current time: 04:17:34 PM

This should be displayed in the chosen-locale's time (24hour), rather than in en_US 12hour format.

Well, you're mistaken that 12-hour format is just en_US - for one thing, it's what the locale files for en_GB say too (see /usr/share/i18n/locales/en_GB and search for "am_pm"). We do try to use the chosen locale. However, it doesn't seem to quite work properly in the case where different countries within the same language have different LC_TIME conventions, and it won't work properly for countries whose locale definitions haven't been generated. Hmm. This may be complicated to fix.

Changed in ubiquity:
importance: Medium → Low
status: Unconfirmed → Confirmed
