It is already 2011. I didn't monitor the issue closely, but judging by
the face that http://bugs.python.org/issue9527 is still open, Python
still doesn't have a method to extract current timezone information
from system. Can anybody recap what are we going to do with that in
Python 3?

Probably related - http://bugs.python.org/issue762963

It is very cumbersome to work with distributed time data with plain Python.
