This isn't on my to-do list, or Pierre's either so far as I know. Although I
certainly agree it is a useful feature. As far as major new features, I am
kind of waiting to see what transpires with the numpy datetime data type when
it matures a bit and then maybe see how we might integrate that into the time
series package, at which point it would also be useful to revisit this feature.

Of course, if a motivated individual put together a rock solid proposal for how
to incorporate this with the existing module and a patch as well, I'd be more
than happy to include it. But it obviously does require some C programming,
which significantly reduces the number of people that could put together such
a patch.
