Need For A Google Calculator Time Zone Capability

The Google search box can perform calculations and conversions involving math, units of measure, physical constants, and currency conversion.

A function that seems to be missing is the capability to convert times and dates between time zones.

Google does return your local time if you enter the keyword: "time", and it will also display localized time if, for example, you enter the search keywords: "time france".

However currently the following searches fail - they do not display times.

5:00 PM New York time in Rome
7:30 AM Paris is what time in Munich
10:00 PM Chicago in Geneva

In my opinion, Google calculator could be enhanced by including a simple time zone conversion function.
