When I committed Lib/datetime.py to svn, I made sure that it was done in a way that preserved the history of that file going back to 2002.
Can you be more precise? How did you do that?
However, hg log of this file starts with my commit about a year ago. Is it possible to re-add the old history?
We cannot "add" any past history in any case.
The history of datetime.py is very helpful for understanding various design decisions implemented in that module.
I would advise to document design decisions in source code comments or in a separate file. Having to dig in VCS logs, or read many tracker entries, is IMO too tedious.
