It would be helpful to add a $gmt parameter to the_time().


the_time( 'c', true );

is cleaner/easier than:

echo esc_attr( get_post_time( 'c', true ) );

Use case:
This format of timestamp is required for microformats metadata.

This will break backwards compatibility on the_time filter, since it doesn't have a concept of GMT time being requested. Even if the flag is added to it as parameter, any existing filter out there would not know to check for it.
