Since this is an area where the discussion of implementation details
and the discussion of the developer experience can easily end up at
cross purposes, I'm wondering if there may be value in actually
splitting those two discussions into different venues by creating a
datetime-sig, and specifically inviting the pytz and dateutil
developers to participate in the SIG as well.

The traffic on a similarly niche group like import-sig is only
intermittent, but it means that by the time we bring suggestions to
python-ideas or python-dev, we've already thrashed out the low level
arcana and know that whatever we're proposing *can* be made to work,
leaving the core lists to focus on the question of whether or not the
change *should* be made.

Whether or not to do that would be up to the folks with a specific
interest in working with dates and times, though.
