New submission from anatoly techtonik <techtonik at gmail.com>:

Current OOP API of datetime is ugly:

from datetime import datetime
print datetime.today().isoformat()

The proposal is to add today() and now() as module functions:

from datetime import today, now
print today()
# datetime.date(2010, 6, 5)
print now()
# datetime.datetime(2010, 6, 5, 9, 48, 4, 868000)
