issue12750 makes strftime('%s') portable. For symmetry,
datetime.strptime(s, '%s') could be enabled to return local time as an
aware (to avoid loosing info) datetime object for a given integer
(seconds since the Epoch) timestamp string.

I've uploaded a prototype patch with a draft implementation, docs, and

It's a comprehensive patch so can we have a formal review please.

With PEP 495, conversion from timestamp to naive datetime will no longer loose information.  In light of this, I would like to reconsider what strftime('%s') should return in the absence of %z.
