You could check out mxDateTime. It has COM date support, strptime()
and also a much more powerful date/time parser:

Not sure how you would convert the Win32 PyTime objects into
DateTime objects though. If they implement the int() APIs, then
DateTimeFromTicks(pyTime) will do, otherwise there's also a
constructor DateTimeFromCOMDate(comdate) which takes the raw
COM date float as argument.

Mark ?
