I can't imagine why you'd want to use a Referenceable for a DateTime
object. Copying probably _is_ what he should be using.

I started this way back at PyCon, but never finished it. I didn't want
to implement it for this generation of PB when there's a newer one in
the, uhm, toaster.

So, for now, there's going to have to be a new class. :-(
