I agree with this sentiment. The UNIX timestamp stuff should stay in time, the time tuple stuff should just go, and datetime should be fleshed out to handle all the stuff that is not a direct wrapping around libc. That way people deal with accurate datetimes as well as well understood concepts with UNIX timestamps and datetime objects.
What? We all agree?
I don't :-)
We've done the stdlib reorg already, now it's time to focus on improving what's there, not removing things.
Well, I agree that adding functionality is what's mostly needed in the date/time area right now. Removing old stuff should be quite low priority compared to that.
(perhaps I should stop agreeing with everyone, sorry :-))
