datetime.strptime() uses the return value of _strptime() [ which returns 1900 for 29th Feb without an year ] and eventually ends up calling datetime_new()->check_date_args() [ datetimemodule.c ] with 29th Feb 1900 and eventual failure.

Should we enhance check_date_args to take a year_dont_care flag and validate the input year argument only if it is explicitly passed?
