It turns out the API already *is* exported as a capsule:
https://github.com/python/cpython/blob/master/Include/datetime.h#L149

Our general guidance for capsule usage is just outdated, and the
datetime API follows that dated advice:
https://docs.python.org/3/extending/extending.html#providing-a-c-api-for-an-extension-module

I'll file a separate issue for that docs problem later (the tracker is
reporting 502 Proxy Error for me right now)
