Subject: Missing a commonly used HTTP date format
I found your HTTP-Date module to not parse following date format i've seen on many HTTP servers: 'Mon, 20 Feb 2012 10:44:34 +0000 GMT' It would be _very_ nice to have this supported in the future. Thank you for the great work with HTTP-Date!!
It would be helpful to document a few specific cases of this. Do you have any examples available, or know the name of server software that generates such dates?
It seems, that some php based cms systems generate such dates. e.g. http://www.inobas.com/aboutus/imprint.php?lang=de

The Twitter API gives dates in this format, e.g. https://dev.twitter.com/docs/api/1.1/get/statuses/user_timeline

This URL does not exist anymore. The replacement URL seems to be http://inobas.de/unternehmen/ but this is creating a pretty standard Date HTTP header: Date: Thu, 17 Dec 2015 12:15:22 GMT

Currently the documentation lists examples like "created_at": "Wed Aug 29 17:12:58 +0000 2012", which is different from what the original poster described (and here it's not HTTP anyway).
