Sure. At the moment I think PEP 495 is headed in a direction I support,
relative to the other options available. So I don't have any plans for a
competing PEP.

My latest couple messages in this thread are more about figuring out the
right framing for a documentation addition that might help people (like
me) coming from a pytz-style model understand datetime's model (and
specifically understand how "classic arithmetic" is not a bug). I think
I finally understand it now, so I'd like to put that understanding to
good use.
