Now, please, can we not start discussing how __hash__ should behave if utcoffset() raises a MissingTimeError?
__hash__ is a tail. I still want to get people thinking about the dog. Really. Let's give people some space to look at it from a higher level? Implementation details aren't users' problems, and I want to be (more) sure we can live with the high-level model.
This forum may not be inclusive enough for this. People in this group know too much!
I plan to cross some t's and dot some i's in the PEP text this week and complete the "big rename" in the reference implementation. After that, I will be ready to present the PEP for a final round on Python-Dev.
Granted, Python-Dev is also a rather elite group, but I hope we will find a few people there who have used time.mktime(dt.timetuple()) in their programs and never thought there was anything wrong with their code.
