"At an elementary level the division of two natural numbers is – among
other possible interpretations – the process of calculating the number of
times one number is contained within another one."

-- <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Division_(mathematics)>

The process of figuring out how many seconds fit into a given interval is
called division by a second.

I am afraid people who get confused by timedelta / timedelta division know
too much about Python where / can indeed mean anything including e.g.
joining filesystem paths.
