I worked around it by subclassing DateTime, maybe this helps you fixing this issue

I'm hitting this in Mailman 3 now because I'm creating all my datetime objects with a UTC timezone. This adds the +00:00 suffix onto the str format, breaking DateTime as you see above. At the very least, UTC timezones should be supported directly.

Markus, can you post your subclass? It would be nice not to duplicate the effort with subtle differences.
