i looked at the source of DateTime::strftime(), surpirse, surprise :)
strftime uses python's datetime class and it's strftime method!
but no care is taken at this time for timezone information, so i
decided to code a tzinfo subclass for datetime that can represent
fixed offset from gmt (no dst) and hand one such instance to
datetime.fromtimestamp(). seems like this code is working correctly now.
i'll run it against some tests tomorrow and report back on the results.
