No, it does not. I understand now why ValueError was an intentional choice here. The CRT actually breaks the loop with a goto if any call to expand_time fails. So raising a Python exception is the only reasonable course of action. (I still think maybe it's a good place to use the new _Py_BEGIN_SUPPRESS_IPH macro. That way instead of presuming what's a valid format code, it could just handle the EINVAL.)
