Kent uses IPython, which is an enhanced version of the standard python
shell.  That's what the In[] and Out[] bits are from.

Python 2.4, unfortunately.  datetime.strptime only came in with Python
2.5, IIRC.  The Python 2.4 version is:

d = datetime.datetime(*(time.strptime(date_string, format)[0:6]))

(i.e. that corresponds to "d = datetime.datetime.strptime(date_string, format)")
