This is partially addressed by issue 5094, "datetime lacks concrete
tzinfo impl. for UTC".  A more ambitious project would be to add pytz
to stdlib.  I believe I've seen this idea discussed and rejected, but
I am not able to find a link to an appropriate thread now.  A half-way
project would be to add LocalTimezone given as an example in
http://docs.python.org/dev/py3k/library/datetime.html in addition for
UTC timezone.   Any takers?
