A nano-feature I kept complaining about on the list got in 3.7, datetime.fromisoformat :-D


Turns out iso 8601 is a lot larger spec than people realize. "Perfect is the enemy of the good," prevented this function's inclusion for almost a decade, sigh. This one handles the majority usecase and can be extended later, if need be.

You are the nano-hero the Python community deserves right now.
