There are at least 4 places in the standard Python 2.3 library which 
build an RFC 2822 formatted string:

rfc822.formatstring
email.Utils.formatdate
logging.handlers.SMTPHandler.date_time
BaseHTTPServer.HTTPServer.date_time_string

Looking at them, it makes sense to me to
  - replace rfc822's implementation with email's
      (that's the most flexible of the bunch)

  - start a migration so that email uses the one
      from rfc822, if available, else it's own implementation
      (since email is distributed to older Pythons)

  - have logging use the one in rfc822.

  - have BaseHTTPServer use the one in rfc822

If this is deemed an appropriate change, I can send in
a patch.
