Hello,

Thanks for all the great ideas. Based on your input, I was able to solve my
problem by way of a FakeDate in a fakedate module.

In the testing module, before importing the tested module, I would load my
fakedate module into sys.modules under the key 'datetime'. So when the
tested module is imported, it will get my fakedate module in stead of the
original C-extension datetime module.

That way, the tested module needs no modification.
