I'm struggling with issue per the subject, read different threads and issue http://bugs.python.org/issue15443 that started 2012 still opened as of today.
Isn't there a legitimate case for nanosecond support? it's all over the place in 'struct timespec' and maybe wrongly I always found python and C were best neighbors. That's for the notional aspect.
If you skip down to the more recent 2014 part of the discussion, the use case has been accepted as valid, but the idea still needs a concrete change proposal that addresses the various API design and backwards compatibility issues that arise. Specifically, questions like:
* preserving compatibility with passing in microsecond values * how to accept nanosecond values * how to correctly unpickle old datetime pickle values * how to update strptime() and strftime()
