That sounds all superb, and excellent. The one question I'd ask is, would
it be practical and reasonable to lose the _z and _rz suffixes, and make
the timezone arg an optional extra arg to localtime/mktine, with varargs?
It seems saddening to carry the original api forward unchanged at the
expense of blessing into official api standard what look to a naive eye
like placeholder function names.
