To speed up my testing I created a cutdown version of the non-pickle 
tests that failed :-)
One of them fails in standard python as well so is a problem with the 
datetime.py code
The others are all due to classmethod not accepting keyword arguments.
I've attached a patch to __builtin__module.py that enables it to accept 
keyword arguments, which makes all those tests pass.

Seems simple, could it be applied?
