I believe after my work [1] from 5 years ago, implementing this should
be a simple matter of removing a few if statements.  I stopped short
of the original goal mainly because I did not want to deal with the
question of how datetimes with sub-minute offsets should be printed
when the relevant standard only gives you four digits for the UTC
offset.  [2]
