For example with collective.jsonify, we might have differently formatted dates, e.g. 2004/12/30 00:20:00 GMT+1.

I propose to let zope's DateTime handle everything and to not define a format:

>>> from DateTime import DateTime
>>> DateTime('2015-12-31 17:59:59').asdatetime()
datetime.datetime(2015, 12, 31, 17, 59, 59)
>>> DateTime("2004/12/30 00:20:00 GMT+1").asdatetime()
datetime.datetime(2004, 12, 30, 0, 20, tzinfo=<StaticTzInfo 'GMT+1'>)

alternatively we'd have to make the format configurable 😕
