Well, numpy's datetime64 can be set to use (almost) whatever unit you want:
Though it uses a single epoch, which I don't think ever made sense with
And it has other problems, but it was designed that way, just for the
However, while there has been discussion of improvements, like making the
epoch settable, none of them have happened, which makes me think that no
