Use date_default_timezone_get() instead of ini_get('date.timezone')
Using date_default_timezone_get() instead of ini_get('date.timezone') in TYPO3\Flow\Core\Bootstrap would allow developers to set the timezone in code instead of modifying the php.ini.

I am totally in favor of this suggestion because this is the no. 1 issue people struggle with setting up TYPO3 Flow/Neos. There is absolutely no reason (at least none known to me) to artificially put a hard break here. Please enlighten me if there is a reason.
Otherwise I'd strongly suggest integrating this change. Also two of the four stages in
date_timezone_get (including the last guessing stage) are dropped with PHP 5.4. Maybe one tweak: check against "UTC" as this is returned as last resort and unlikely to be a user setting.
