Sorry, allowing for conversion to int/float is probably a more sensible

This idea was brought to my mind when I was making a very very simple
script for a friend to display how far through a time range we currently
are. For example:

	elapsed = datetime.timedelta(hours=4, days=3)
	duration = datetime.timedelta(days=30)
	percentage = (100 * elapsed / duration)

In my case, precision wasn't important so I just divided elapsed.days by
duration.days, but it would be continent to have an accurate result by
just writing what I did above.
