It seems time contains a simple wrapper around the equivalent C
functions. There is no C equivalent to timegm() (how do they do it?).
The timegm() function is implemented in python using the datetime
module. The name sux BTW.
It would be nice if there was a time.mkgmtime(), but it would need to be
implemented in C.
