But passing fold=1 in a non-fold/gap case is almost certainly a flat-out programmer error, _except_ that PEP 495 requires never ever complaining about it, and to the contrary _requires_ it to be done if the user wants to find out whether their datetime is any way odd.
A programmer who knows about fold does not need as much hand-holding as the one who does not. My customer is the ignorant programmer.
C'mon, admit it - _part_ of it makes you cringe too, if even just a little ;-)
What makes me cringe is the problem domain where I am required to implement an inverse to a non-monotonic function. And that's on top of the world where clock hands can move backwards.
