This isn't some oddball weekend project from an out-of-work programmer.
It's derived from BSD 4.4 and then looks like Tcl absorbed it as their
implementation of strftime.  The version I posted looks like it's part of
Darwin.  Should be fairly well wrung out.  I downloaded it and with a couple
mods I was able to use it as a substitute for strftime() in timemodule.c.
It compiles cleanly and seems to pass all tests.

My thought would be to only use this for Python 3.0.
