Thanks for that.

import datetime


do work but

calling strftime() on a datetime object throws an import error

Error Type: ImportError
Error Value: import of "__doc__" from "time" is unauthorized. You are not  
allowed to access '__doc__' in this context

Is this correct?

This is the same error thrown when using a wrapper class that uses  
getattr(datime_object, method_name) instead of overwriting the methods.
