[issue13327] Update utime API to not require explicit None argument

Brian Curtin report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Brian Curtin <brian at python.org>:

os.utime currently requires an explicit `None` as the second argument in order to update to the current time. Other APIs would just have the second argument as optional in this case, operating with one argument.

Attached is a patch which changes the second argument to accept the time tuple, `None`, or literally nothing. Tested on Windows and Mac.

If this is acceptable, I'll make the same change for futimes, lutimes, and futimens.
