current_time() expects that date_default_timezone_set is never used — at Initial Version

Currently, the function current_time() expects date_default_timezone_set() is never used.

Inspecting the code of current_time() confirmed this, because it formats the result using date() function (that is affected by timezone).

In fact seems Wordpress always resets the timezone to UTC; an echo date_default_timezone_get(); placed at top and at bottom of wp-config.php in a clean WordPress setup will prove this.

So using date_default_timezone_set() anywhere in theme or plugin code will broke current_time().
