I agree with Chris. My intent with this work for now (for NumPy 1.11) is
simply to complete phase 1. Once NumPy stops pretending to be time zone
aware (and with a few other small cleanups), datetime64 will be far more
useable. For major fixes, we'll have to wait until dtype support is better.

Alexander -- by "mst" I think Chris meant "most".
