R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com> added the comment:

Python's strftime is a thin wrapper around the system strftime.  This means, for example, that a slightly different set of % codes is supported on windows vs linux.  So, from Python's point of view this is at *most* a doc bug.

That said, I think there have been some rumblings about writing our own strftime, but I don't know if anyone is serious about it.
