No problem - add "formats" module and I'll be happy.

>On the other hand, datetime module should provide facilities to easily implement such methods and there does not seem to be a good solution for implementing locale independent formats.  I would like to consider the idea of adding datetime.cstrftime() which provides formatting equivalent to datetime.strftime() in "C" locale.  Another feature that will be needed to implement rfcformat, would be a GNU date style "%:z" code.

If there is no best solution then the best out worse solutions is much
much better - provided that an appropriate explanation is available
