In my personal opinion, we should

* provide a convenient way to convert DateTime objects into datetime,
* create alternate APIs for all the APIs that work with DateTime
(e.g. create a version of bobobase_modification_time that returns a
datetime, same with the CMF DublinCore interface, etc.)
* let DateTime rot forever
And, the new version of "bobobase_modification_time" should have
a more senseful name.
A 'cleaner', much better working version (datetime) and time zone
support (pytz) have been around for ever since Python 2.3 was
and supported by Zope 2 several years (!) ago. It was everybody's
NOT to use it so far.
Not sure whether "everybody's choice" is correct.
I believe that "datetime" is not even importable in TTW code
and "datetime" objects not accessible in TTW code -- at least,
they have not been until recently...
allow_module('datetime') is all you had to do. Ok, admittedly, pure-
TTW developers who can't or won't touch filesystem code were out of
luck, but everybody who *knew* about datetime and wanted to use it
could have done so.
