As this conversation has progressed, it seems the way forward, if anyone
wants to go there, is a new datetime class that conforms to Carls "Model A"
-- is that what you mean?

For my part, it would be cool if such a class could use the same tzinfo
objects as datetime.datetime, and maybe the same timedelta.

But as Carl suggested -- that would be a job for a new library anyway.
