Christian Heimes added the comment:

If we want to archive platform independence from the libc's strftime() and strptime() function and its bugs, we could include our own implementation. Or rather than writing our own code we may be able to include some working and well tested code.

BSD's libc contains the functions. Its license should allow the inclusion into Python core. http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/lib/libc/stdtime/

If you like my idea we should discuss it on python-ideas and start a new tracker entry.
