We definitely can't make that change to PyNumber_Divmod in 3.7 at this point, I'm sure someone somewhere is relying on being able to get arbitrary information out of their objects with `divmod(crazy_object)`.  I don't know enough math to say whether there could be any legitimate mathematical use for arbitrary return values so I leave it to others to determine whether we could make that consider that change in 3.8 just to clean things up.

I've looked through _datetimemodule.c and I don't see how timedelta.__divmod__ could fail like this, since it actually creates new timedelta objects from its arguments to work from.
