datetime vs mxDateTime

I was going to write an analysis of the similarities and differences between the new (in Python 2.3) datetime module and the de-facto standard mxDateTime. But Simon has beaten me to it in the comments on this blog entry.

I may write up my investigation in the future, but the conclusion is basically going to be the same as Simons. If the standard module is good enough, use it. Otherwise look at mxDateTime, especially if you want to do moderately complex date and time arithmetic.

I found a few similar links, but a comparison write-up w/ examples would be appreciated.
