Why doesn't Time accept the output from ParseDate.parsedate directly?

Like
  Time.gm(ParseDate.parsedate("Mon Jul 16 2001 GMT"))

The problem lies in the timezone, I guess.
I wonder if a module for parsing a string is necessary at all (instead
of just allowing that in class Time), but you'll have your reasons.

But
  Time.new("Mon Jul 16 15:56:56 GMT 2001")
would do nicely for me.
