Thanks for wanting to work on this.

It is a little hard to parse from the OP's initial post, but he is asking that %V and %u be supported by datetime.strptime, which they currently are not.  strptime is the generalized constructor for turning a string into a datetime, so no, a new constructor is not the right approach.

The code that implements the strptime method of datetime is in the file in Lib.  Your patch should be against that code.  (Note that this is pretty un-obvious, I had to dig a bit to figure it out!)
