I was more thinking of basic stuff like the UTC, FixedOffset and
LocalTimezone classes from the library reference:
I just wrote a small RSS generator; it took more more time to sort out
how to get strftime("%z") to print something meaningful than it took to
write the rest of the code.
would anyone mind if I added the above classes to the datetime module ?
