Re: Cygwin strptime() is missing "%s" which strftime() has

Well, I was bringing up a point of API inconsistency, hoping that it'd serve as an
implicit request for an improvement so that strptime() gets its "%s"...

Maybe coreutils did not need "%s" for strptime, but dateutils certainly do, as:

> date +"%s" | strptime "%s"

does not work on Cygwin.  That looks odd.
