Please don't do this. We need stable APIs. Trying to switch the entire community to use CapWord APIs for something as commonly used as datetime sounds like wasting a lot of cycles with no reason except the mythical "PEP 8 conformance". As I said, it's a pity we didn't change this at the 3.0 point, but I think going forward we should try to be more committed to slow change. Additions of new functionality are of course fine. But renamings (even if the old names remain available) are just noise.
OK, I had misunderstood your earlier message. Sorry for the confusion.
No problem! I was probably using shorthand that only experienced devs understood.
I hope you'll find other things to contribute!
