Your email address      : machack(at)rsnsoft(dot)com

System Configuration
  Architecture (example: Intel Pentium)         : Intel Celeron

Please enter a FULL description of your problem:
Dates including both a timezone offset and a timezone identifier fail parse
as invalid dates.

Please describe a way to repeat the problem.   Please try to provide a
concise reproducible example, if at all possible:
select datetime('Sat, 2 Oct 1999 01:29:48 -0700 (MST)'::text) from some_table;
ERROR:  Bad datetime external representation

although both of the following work:
select datetime('Sat, 2 Oct 1999 01:29:48 -0700'::text) from some_table;
select datetime('Sat, 2 Oct 1999 01:29:48 (MST)'::text) from some_table;

If you know how this problem might be fixed, list the solution below:
As long as the supplied offset and timezone identifier are consistent,
there seems no reason not to allow both.

  Miranda paused at the antibacterial soap. Would using it create a
  more resilient strain of bacteria? Should she chance it, endangering
  the free world, or just wipe the cheetos dust on her jeans?
