OTOH, it seems that Guido is very much in favor of hard-coding ns resolution in the API, claiming that expectations of even finer resolution are academic. While I still disagree (the *very* same argument was brought up for ms resolution ten years ago), I think that practicality beats purity here: people apparently can deal with an fixed scale much better than with a floating one. So it may be better to meet the apparent intuition of the majority than follow the purity route.
