I misspoke.  test_strptime fails with timezone issues.  That's probably just
my misunderstanding of how Python deals with timezones.  I make a quick
replacement of Tcl's tzname stuff to get it to compile, but the test fails.
It would probably not be much work for someone who understands how the
Python datetime/time code handles timezone names.
