[Haskell-cafe] formatTime doesn't work with local time ??

My error:

    Couldn't match expected type `T.UTCTime'
           against inferred type `T.LocalTime'
    In the second argument of `formatTime', namely `date'
    In the expression: formatTime "%Y/%m/%e %k:%M:%S" date

But the docs have LocalTime listed as one of the FormatTime instances:

FormatTime Day
FormatTime UTCTime
FormatTime TimeZone
FormatTime TimeOfDay
FormatTime ZonedTime
FormatTime LocalTime
