datetime seems to be broken WRT timezones (even when you add them)

Everyone gets to decide how much time and effort they put into
supporting an old and unsupported system. Are you telling me that
someone is enslaving you and forcing you to continue supporting Python
2, or are you actually saying that it's less effort to keep
maintaining old code than to port to Py3? As I said in the previous
email, I did NOT say that it's time to instantly drop Py2 like a hot
potato. (And if you do nothing, a hot potato just becomes a cold
potato. Thank you, Bernard.)
