Ok, there are 3 choices:

* Do nothing: musl crash on year > 9999, glibc supports year > 9999, behaviour is likely undefined on other libc
* PR 3296: Reject year > 9999 on all platforms: can be seen as a Python 2.7 regression when running with glibc
* PR 3293: Reimplement time.asctime() and time.ctime() to not depend on the libc anymore, as done in Python 3

My favorite option is now "PR 3293: Reimplement time.asctime()". Yeah, there is a risk of getting a behaviour change on funky libc with funky values, but IMHO it's worth it.
