"Vast" is a bit of overstatement.  It is mostly the datetime and time
module with a little bit in a less used calendar module.   I believe a
stated goal is to gradually remove the need for time module in
date/time manipulation and possibly fold it into posix module.

Can you be more specific?  The biggest omission, IMO, is the lack of
time zone support, but this is being worked on.  See  issue5094.

See issue1647654.
