Just like with standard arrays, appending to a TimeSeries is not very  
efficient. Instead, you may want to consider creating a list of tuples  
and appending as it goes. Then, create a TimeSeries out of it at the  
very end.

 >>>  test=[(dt.datetime(2009,01,d),f) for (d,f) in  
 >>> # Make a tmp array
 >>>  tmp=np.array(test,dtype=[('dates',object),('f',float)])
 >>> ts.time_series(tmp['f'],dates=tmp['dates'])

Note that you'd have to define a frequency or you'd end up with an  
'undefined' frequency...
