Interesting. I notice that dateutil.parser.parse already understands you
notation:

>>> x = dateutil.parser.parse("5h32m15s")
>>> x
datetime.datetime(2014, 9, 23, 5, 32, 15)

All that would be necessary is some way to tell it to generate a timedelta
instead of a datetime. Might be better to feed changes back to the dateutil
package maintainers.
