[PATCH 2/2] Add std.rfc1123() to convert a formatted datetime to VCL_TIME

I thought about this and decided to go for rfc1123() as time() would
indicate a TIME input with .integer(), .ip() and .real().

While I agree that rfc1123() is a bit obscure it hints that the input
requires some standard format. Actually I should also document the
different formats supported.

The other options I had in mind were datetime() and date() but I liked
rfc1123() best.
