Unfortunately 'strptime' also only seems to parse the components as
>>> import datetime
>>> time_format = "%H:%M:%S"
>>> time_value = datetime.datetime.strptime("09:45:31.064371", time_format)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/_strptime.py", line 334, in strptime
ValueError: unconverted data remains: .064371
The same thing happens with 'time.strptime'. So this isn't yet a
solution for the OP.
