No, but the last time I suggested that that datetime types should
satisfy the same invariants as numbers, namely
T(repr(x)) == x, the idea was met will silence.  I, on the other hand,
am not very enthusiastic about named constructors such as
date.isoparse().  Compared with date(s:str), this is one more method
name to remember, plus the potential for abuse as an instance method.
What is d.isoparse('2017-11-24')?
