I wasn't aware parse_datetime followed a defined grammar. And this
seems to be an English grammar idiosyncrasy, which is definitely not
familiar to me (not a native english speaker).
IMO, I don't really see a problem supporting an "erroneous English
grammar", since parse_datetime should probably not be so strict about it
and adapt to such small cases.
Anyway, just my opinion.
