I'm not wild about some of the changes that indent made to times.cc.
A lot of the changes are nice but some of the formatting doesn't
seem right to me.

Can I ask where this strptime came from?  Is this a new work?  If
so maybe we want to just incorporate a strptime from FreeBSD.  An
in-use strptime would have a known track record and should have
most bugs shaken out of it.
