Alexander Belopolsky added the comment:

I recall a discussion in which it was argued that "look before you leap"-style 
argument checking that we implemented in py3k was a feature and backporting it 
to 2.x could potentially break code running on platforms with promiscuous (and 
possibly buggy) asctime().

I am +0 on back-porting, but would like someone else to make the call.
