PEP 495 [1] is a deliberately minimalistic proposal to remove an
ambiguity in representing some local times as datetime.datetime

The concept has been extensively discussed on python-ideas and this
mailing list.  I believe a consensus has been reached and it is
reflected in the PEP.

PEP 495 does not propose any changes to datetime/timedelta
arithmetics, but it has been agreed that it is a necessary step for
implementing the "strict" rules.
