Where is the problem? Where is the limit? AFAIK zopes DateTime
object uses a floating point number internally to store the
seconds. I dont see this overflow in the near future :)
However, I can instantiate even DateTime('2052/01/05')
May be you have mixed it up with the systemclock - c-library
interface which is in fact 32bit only (on most systems)?
