I agree, this can be improved (particularly the first one). I believe we'll need to change it in the C implementation as well as the pure python version.

That said, the most useful thing for users would be a full formatting reference, which is too much to put in the docstring (and to maintain in at least 3 different places). I'm not sure *how* much better it can get, but at least the first one reads like a terrible self-referential dictionary entry "recyclist (n). a proponent of recyclism". At the very least it should disambiguate between `datetime.strftime`, `time.strftime` and `stftime(3)`.
