Of course they are a problem— why else would they not be implemented
in datetime?

But my point if that given datetimestamp or calculation could be off
by a second or so depending on whether and how leap seconds are

It just doesn’t seem like a good idea to be handling months and
femptoseconds with the same “encoding”
