You could create a lightweight wrapper around datetime arrays which exposed a timeseries-oriented interface but used the datetime functionality to do the computations and provide good performance with large numbers of datetimes. I would love it if you have the time to experiment a bit with the https://github.com/m-paradox/numpy branch I'm developing on, so I could tweak the design or add features to make this easier based on your feedback from using the new data type.

I'll do my best, depending on my free time, alas... Did you have a chance to check scikits.timeseries (and its experimental branch) ? If you have any question about it, feel free to contact me offlist (less noise that way, we can always summarize the discussion).
Cheers
