Since the merge of the time zone support branch, django.utils.tzinfo and django.utils.timezone provide subtly different implementations of a tzinfo subclass representing local time.
The reason is explained at the bottom of this message. In short, the former is used for display and focuses on robustness; the latter is used for time zone support and focuses on correctness.
I think django.utils.tzinfo should be refactored and merged into django.utils.timezone, but that's probably not doable in a totally backwards-compatible fashion.
