Ok I understand this now.
My original need is by example, convert
Apr 16 12:09:00 SGT 2010
to UTC format.
I would like to use datetime.datetime.strptime function, but it don't success to
parse %Z param.
pytz haven't parse function.
python-dateutil have a auto discover parse function, but I don't want to use
this auto discover feature.
Question, pytz can't implement a parsing feature ?
