[Python-Dev] Python strptime

I have implemented strptime in pure Python (SF patch #474274) as a drop-in
replacement for the time module's version, but there is the issue of the
time module being a C extension.  Any chance of getting a Python module
stub for time (assuming this patch is good enough to be accepted)?

There is also obviously the option of doing something like a time2, but is
there enough other time-manipulating Python code out there to warrant
another module?  It could be used for housing naivetime and any other code
that does not directly stem from some ANSI C function.
