I just pushed the weekend's changes, including a fix for your problem. 
Now it should be possible to define an array of dates w/ a timestep different from 1:
>>> date_array(start_date=Date("T", "2010-06-21 00:00"), length=4, timestep=15)
DateArray([21-Jun-2010 00:00, 21-Jun-2010 00:15, 21-Jun-2010 00:30,
       21-Jun-2010 00:45],
Feedback is essential at this point...

In the meantime, you can still run nosetests on the directory where you downloaded the sources...
