I get different times from a string, depending whether I use '-' or '/'
as a date delimiter.

  >>> from DateTime.DateTime import DateTime
  >>> DateTime('2001-08-20').pCommonZ()
'Aug. 20, 2001 12:00 am GMT+0'
  >>> DateTime('2001/08/20').pCommonZ()
'Aug. 20, 2001 12:00 am GMT+1'

I find the difference a tad surprising.

Is this a bug or a feature?

If it's a bug, I'll work on a fix.

I'm guessing this is a feature; perhaps using the '-' delimiter suggests
I'm trying to use ISO formatting.

I'm running this in a GMT+1 timezone btw.

Zope latest from CVS, Python 2.1.

I never got a reply as to whether it was a bug or a feature, so I didn't 
work on a fix.
