But I'm confused -- from what I can tell (from docs and docstrings),
strptime isn't supposed to be a module, it's supposed to be a function
within the time module.

Jack?  Any idea what's the deal with this?

Well, I can probably do it -- though note that you can do relative times
and intervals with the standard time module as well; there's really no
reason to need a new compiled module for that.  But if nobody else
volunteers, I'll try to compile this for you -- but it probably won't be
till next week, as the rest of this week is quite busy for me.
