[New-bugs-announce] [issue7463] PyDateTime_IMPORT() causes compiler warnings

New submission from Murray Cumming <murrayc at murrayc.com>:

At least in Python 2.5 and 2.6 (I haven't checked newer versions), the 
PyDateTime_IMPORT() macro passes string literals to a function that
takes non-const char* parameters:

#define PyDateTime_IMPORT \
        PyDateTimeAPI = (PyDateTime_CAPI*) PyCObject_Import("datetime", \

This makes it impossible to build code with warnings as errors, when
using that macro.
