I've been waiting for some sort of nod from that direction. I actually see
two parts here: a straight forward part involving the datetime and timedelta
types, and a more complicated bit involving all the units and such. I think
the latter needs to be looked at along with Darren's work for adding units
to decide if it is the best approach. And I wonder a bit if a subclass using
Darren's stuff wouldn't be the way to go seeing as how the two new types are
basically npy_int64.

Anyway, I think I'll just stop worrying about it and go ahead with updates
in the trunk. Merging datetime might be a bit of work but I'll just leave
that to those involved ;)
