datetime.datetime.strptime is definitely in CPython 2.5 and 2.6:

tony-meyers-imac:~ tameyer$ python
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Feb  6 2009, 19:02:12)
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Inc. build 5465)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import datetime
>>> datetime.datetime.strptime("2010 06 08", "%Y %m %d")
datetime.datetime(2010, 6, 8, 0, 0)

The only IP 2.6 I have handy is trypython.org, and the above code does
fail there (no copy and paste from the site unfortunately).

This is a known bug (so go vote!):
