lastmod datetime invalid according to google RRS feed

    When submitting a SEO Toolkit generated sitemap to google, I get a warning about the lastmod tag invalid date

    looking at the w3c specs:

          YYYY (eg 1997)
          YYYY-MM (eg 1997-07)
          YYYY-MM-DD (eg 1997-07-16)
          YYYY-MM-DDThh:mmTZD (eg 1997-07-16T19:20+01:00)
          YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssTZD (eg 1997-07-16T19:20:30+01:00)
          YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss.sTZD (eg 1997-07-16T19:20:30.45+01:00)
    these are the possible combo's

    SEO toolkit does: 2009-06-07T15:54:34 and is missing TZS=  time zone designator (Z or +hh:mm or -hh:mm)

    So pretty much a extra Z in the end would fix this.
