It may be simple but as Ezio has pointed out, it has already been rejected :)

The problem with being generous in what you accept in this context is that the parsing is using a specific format string, and the semantics of that format string are based on external "standards" and are pretty inflexible.

The pythonic solution, IMO, is to have datetime's constructor accept what its str produces.  And indeed, exactly this has been suggested by Alexander Belopolsky in issue 15873. So I'm going to close this one as a duplicate of that one.
