Improved timedelta attributes/methods

Hello dear Python-wielding developers!

I generally like date/time handling in Python very much, especially how date
operations result in Timedelta
But I find it somewhat impractical, that you can only get days, seconds and
microseconds out of a time delta. I think it would be much more comfortable
to have fields for minutes, hours, maybe also years, months. Is there a
specific reasoning why this is not available?

I would gladly do my best to implement such a solution, if it would make
sense to the devs.
