Well the numeric timezone would indeed be an easy addition for the
windows version. But the problem with that one is that it is a GNU
extension to strftime - so we would have to implement that on every
UNIX without a GNU libc. And currently apr just wraps strftime on
unixes, doing no processing of it's own - so I do not know if it's
wanted to add a GNU extension there.
