I agree that the datetime documentation is showing its age and could
benefit from a face-lift, but note that being an entertaining read is not a
primary goal of the reference documentation if at all.  The datetime
documentation has evolved through a series of local patches as new features
have been added to the module.  At each turn, the primary goal was to have
a complete and accurate documentation for each method and not as much on
having the overall document well-organized.

Some of the complaints expressed in this thread can be better addressed in
a tutorial-style document rather than the reference documentation.
