I tried to bring some sanity to that effort by opening a "meta issue":


My enthusiasm, however, vanished after I reviewed the refactoring for the
datetime module:


My main objections are to following PEP 384
<http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0384/> (Stable ABI) within stdlib
modules.  I see little benefit for the stdlib (which is shipped fresh with
every new version of Python) from following those guidelines.
