For the SPARC issue, not really. For the datetime issue, I think it at
least needs to be clear what the way forward is. If the issue isn't
solvable without any changes to either the API or the compiler support,
which may well be the case given the amount of effort that has gone into
this already, we need a decision on what to do.

It would also be a good idea to apply the distutils patch before the beta.
