Getting the local time zone in Python is rather difficult.
As of 2008, two articles indicate that the current mechanisms
"Python and time zones part 2: The beast returns!":
"Time zones in Python – welcome to hell":
(Despite that article, there is a straightforward way to get that
information in Windows: "GetDynamicTimeZoneInformation".)
Did something useful ever get done about that? This
ought to be in the "time" module for each platform.
