It's not possible. The operator is already overloaded to return a
DateTimeDelta, just like the datetime -> timedelta relation.

Btw, I'm working on a relativedelta type which is based on the idea of
RelativeDateDiff, but will work on the python 2.3 standard datetime type
(the algorithm will be a little bit different as well). It'll be ready
soon.
