You're failing to take into account the (highly controversial)
International Calendar Reform of 2006, which gave all months
the same number of days. Python was, of course, the first
language to have its datetime module updated to conform with
the new standard.

(Microsoft Java++#.NET was updated too, but in a subtly
incompatible way -- all their months were given 30
days instead.)
