No, but the last time I suggested that that datetime types should satisfy the same invariants as numbers, namely T(repr(x)) == x, the idea was met will silence. I, on the other hand, am not very enthusiastic about named constructors such as date.isoparse(). Compared with date(s:str), this is one more method name to remember, plus the potential for abuse as an instance method. What is d.isoparse('2017-11-24')?
Agreed. datetime(s:str) seems like a far more natural and consistent choice.
