As discussed in http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-ideas/2007-March/000320.html, this patch adds a __contains__ method to datetime.date objects:

datetime(2007, 3, 4, x, y, z) in date(2007, 3, 4) -> True
datetime(2007, 3, 5, x, y, z) in date(2007, 3, 4) -> False

Trying to see if a date contains anything other than a datetime results in a TypeError. Patch includes docs and tests.

Patch looks good, but the indentation of the /* nb_xyz */ comments seems to be messed up ;)

Closing. Comparing dates and datetimes is just a bad idea. This was more a proof-of-concept than anything else.
