Yes, this is a good approach. I actually mistyped the name here -- it's
actually "datetime_as_string". A GitHub search does turn up a handful of
uses outside of NumPy:

That said, I'm not sure it's worth going to the trouble to ensure it
continues to work in the future. This function was entirely undocumented,
and doesn't even have an inspectable function signature.
