Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: year=1876 is before 1900; the datetime strftime() methods require year >= 1900

Apparently this is due to platform-specific weirdnesses in implementations of strftime.  It is still very annoying however.  Perhaps a good implementation of strftime could be found and incorporated into Python itself?
