Issue #12190 has been updated by Tomoyuki Chikanaga.


I wonder if this change could break existing codes.
Any thoughts? If there's no real demand, I'll marks this as WONTFIX in 2.3 branch.

----------------------------------------

----------------------------------------
For CET, only DateTime.strptime successfully parsed timezone

```
irb(main):003:0> DateTime.strptime('2015-11-12 CET', '%Y-%m-%d %Z')
=> #<DateTime: 2015-11-12T00:00:00+01:00 ((2457338j,82800s,0n),+3600s,2299161j)>
irb(main):004:0> Time.strptime('2015-11-12 CET', '%Y-%m-%d %Z')
=> 2015-11-12 00:00:00 +0900
```

For JST also, only DateTime worked.

```
irb(main):005:0> ENV['TZ'] = 'UTC'
=> "UTC"
irb(main):006:0> DateTime.strptime('2015-11-12 JST', '%Y-%m-%d %Z')
=> #<DateTime: 2015-11-12T00:00:00+09:00 ((2457338j,54000s,0n),+32400s,2299161j)>
irb(main):007:0> Time.strptime('2015-11-12 JST', '%Y-%m-%d %Z')
=> 2015-11-12 00:00:00 +0000
```

For PST, both worked.

```
irb(main):004:0> DateTime.strptime('2015-11-12 PST', '%Y-%m-%d %Z')
=> #<DateTime: 2015-11-12T00:00:00-08:00 ((2457339j,28800s,0n),-28800s,2299161j)>
irb(main):003:0> Time.strptime('2015-11-12 PST', '%Y-%m-%d %Z')
=> 2015-11-12 00:00:00 -0800
```

I felt DateTime.strptime and Time.strptime should have compatibility.
