There are know problems comparing durations (e.g. is 30 days more
or less than a month?). For time stamps, there is no issue. For
calender dates, there are again problems, in particular with time

What I don't know (because I never used it) is whether the datetime
module implements time stamps. If it does (i.e. no durations,
no time zones, no issues with leap seconds), then supporting a
total order seems reasonable.
