Could this be revisited?

Especially now that datetime supports `fromisoformat`, as there are valid ISO8601 timestamps in UTC out there, that contain the leap seconds, e.g. files describing when those occured or will occur.

E.g. the NTP Leap second file:

This get's synced on linux to `/usr/share/zoneinfo/leapseconds` and could even be used by python to lookup when leap seconds occured.

The datetime also gained a fold argument, which if it is not wanted to support second values of 60 to at least be able to parse those.

The 60th second of a minute is a reality with our current civil time keeping, so python should be able to handle it.
