I do not understand what it is you want to do. Do you want to replace
the old date and time with the new? If so you already do this with
todo[answer] = datevalue, time. Why do you want to use setdefault?

> #!/usr/bin/python

>        'Clean House':
>        (datetime.date(2009, 4, 4), datetime.time(15, 15)),
>        'Fix Python Code':
>        (datetime.date(2009, 3, 29), datetime.time(9, 1))}

Why not use a datetime object?

todo = {'Study Python':
    (datetime.datetime(2009, 4, 1,12,15)}
