New patch, issue2706a.diff, implements timedelta % timedelta and addresses  Mark's code review comments.

With respect to Mark's
One other thought:  with this division operation added, it might be nice to add constants like td_hour, td_minute, etc. to the module.  Then the perennial 'how can I convert my timedelta x to minutes' questions could be answered with 'just do x/td_minute'.  I would personally find x/td_second to be a more obvious and natural way to find the total number of seconds in a timedelta than x.total_seconds.  I also quite like the idea of being able to create a 2.5-hour timedelta with something like

2*td_hour + 30*td_minute

On the other hand, maybe such constants would just be added clutter, since it's easy to create them when needed.

I dislike this proposal for the same reason as Mark likes it: 2*td_hour + 30*td_minute == timedelta(hours=2, minutes=30) is a violation of TOOWTDI.
