I never got to these functions, no.

I am looking for an easy way of using datetime[m] data to test for business

Here's a stopgap solution for converting to dates, that works for a single
np.datetime64:

def my_datetime_as_date(dt, timezone = 'local'):
    s = np.datetime_as_string(np.datetime64(dt), timezone=timezone)
    e = s.find('T')
    if e != -1:
        s = s[:e]
    return np.datetime64(s, 'D')

>>> my_datetime_as_date('now')
numpy.datetime64('2011-09-30')
>>> my_datetime_as_date('2011-03-13T00:30Z')
numpy.datetime64('2011-03-12')
>>> my_datetime_as_date('2011-03-13T00:30')
numpy.datetime64('2011-03-13')
>>> my_datetime_as_date('2011-03-13T00:30Z', timezone='UTC')
numpy.datetime64('2011-03-13')

Cheers,
Mark
