Have a look at PEP 321:

  http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0321.html

It seems to describe one possible future for the parsing capabilities
of datetime. Under "Generic Input Parsing" the following question is
posed: "Is a strptime() implementation that returns datetime types
sufficient?" No clear answer, though.
