I'm currently in Los Angeles. Bus latency is measured in minutes, and
may easily exceed sixty of them. :|

Seriously though: For applications requiring accurate representation
of relativistic effects, the stdlib datetime module has a good few
problems besides lacking sub-nanosecond precision. I'd be inclined to
YAGNI this away unless/until some third-party module demonstrates that
there's actually a use for a datetime module that can handle all that.
