Certainly the writing (or "unparsing" as you call it :) part of this could
be used.

The parsing bits also look useful, especially the date parsing.
Unfortunately, strptime isn't portable (in particular, I don't think Windows
has it :( ).  But you're using some module called "strptime" -- that's not
from the standard library?

I don't think uid/gid should be numeric or translated to local names when
parsing -- ProFTPD at least returns names, and besides remote uids may not
match local ones.

Also, I'm curious as to how much more reliable this is at parsing wacky
formats than the regular expression in
twisted.protocols.ftp.FTPFileListingProtocol in CVS...
