The specific function change I am proposing, so we have a specific
reference point:

(defun url-get-normalized-date (&optional specified-time)
  "Return a 'real' date string that most HTTP servers can understand."
  (let ((system-time-locale "C"))
    (format-time-string "%a, %d %b %Y %T %Z" 
                        (or specified-time (current-time)))))

Will this work on all systems?  It avoids the hardcoded week and month
abbreviations through the locale specification, but I can only test that
on Linux.
