Tim originally wrote datetime in Python.  You can grab the latest version
from the CVS sandbox:

    http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/python/python/nondist/sandbox/datetime/datetime.py

It seems it's been awhile since it was updated (nearly a year ago), so you
may have to tweak it to add recent functionality.

There has been recent discussion on python-dev about what to do with the
Python version of a module after it's been rewritten in C.  It would be nice
if someone figured out a way to keep datetime.py in sync with the C
version.  Nice properties include:

    * continued availability in the source tree without installation

    * ability to specify the Python version of a module when running
      regression tests
