With patch v4 many tests still fail for me. How are you running the test suite? Some excerpts:

  File "/media/disk/home/proj/python/cpython/Lib/test/", line 1567, in test_isoformat
    self.assertEqual(t.isoformat(timespec='milliseconds'), "0001-02-03T04:05:01.000")
AssertionError: '0001-02-03T04:05:01.000000' != '0001-02-03T04:05:01.000'

  File "/media/disk/home/proj/python/cpython/Lib/test/", line 2310, in test_isoformat
    self.assertEqual(t.isoformat(), "00:00:00")
AssertionError: '00:00:00.000000' != '00:00:00'

  File "/media/disk/home/proj/python/cpython/Lib/test/", line 2379, in test_str
    self.assertEqual(str(self.theclass(12, 2, 3, 0)), "12:02:03")
AssertionError: '12:02:03.000000' != '12:02:03'

The C module doc string I referred to is this one; I left a review comment at the source:

>>> print(datetime.isoformat.__doc__)
[sep] -> string in ISO 8601 format, YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS[.mmmmmm][+HH:MM].

sep is used to separate the year from the time, and defaults to 'T'.
