New submission from Skip Montanaro <skip at pobox.com>:

While responding to a c.l.py question just now I discovered that
numeric timezone offsets don't appear to be supported by either the
time.strftime function or the _strptime module.  I noticed on my
Mac's strftime(3) man page that it supports a %Z format for TZ
names and a %z format for numeric tz offsets.  It seems Python
should as well.
