Jeff put it in on December 12th.

By the way, related to the general topic of the email subject, I have
a version of wcsftime() ready, but since it uses swprintf() it cannot
be added until we have swprintf().  (It's been tested under RHEL5 with
their swprintf().)  I had looked over the FreeBSD version and decided
that I didn't care for how they had done it and decided to make our
own.  So if I'm telling you in time you can save your time by not
working on bringing wcsftime() over from FreeBSD.  If you're making a
big new addition for the other missing ones I could send what I have
to you for incorporation so it all goes in at once, if you'd like.
Or I'll submit it later, once swprintf() is in.
