Why is ruby's core class Time acting like this:

$ env LC_ALL=fr_FR date '+%A'
mardi
$ env LC_ALL=fr_FR ruby -e 't = Time.now; puts t.strftime("%A")'
Tuesday

I would actually like ruby to act like "date" and "obey"
to POSIX or whatever we are used to in the *IX world,
which in turn certainly uses libc's strftime.



I heard rumour, that "this is the standard",
and "it must stay this way".

Would somebody pls shed some light on this?
