I actually meant if you post on the tracker or python-ideas. There is a 
little more leeway here. But as you maybe noticed. even here a trollish 
word can divert discussion from you main point.

But I did not follow the datetime development discussion. I do know that 
the people responsible are not normally braindead ;-).
