=begin
Time#strftime('%Z') should return 'UTC' instead of 'GMT',
as in Time#to_s and Time#zone. This is also the behaviour of Ruby 1.9.3.

 irb(main):001:0> Time.utc(2012, 6, 27).to_s
 => "Wed Jun 27 00:00:00 UTC 2012"
 irb(main):002:0> Time.utc(2012, 6, 27).zone
 => "UTC"
 irb(main):003:0> Time.utc(2012, 6, 27).strftime('%Z')
 => "GMT"
=end
