It does because it's the Python win32net (part of the PythonWin
package) module that is translating the timestamp returned by Windows
into a Python time-module compatible value (e.g., a time_t).

Given that Python does implement OS-specific modules, I don't think we
should exclude platform-specific questions from the Python group.
MS-specific groups aren't going to help with this sort of question,
since the function in question is Python-specific.

Although it's always a good idea to try to identify the platform and
environment within which the question is being raised, since there are
quite a few permutations possible with Python.
