forms.fields.DateTimeField and TimeField so not accept stringified datetimes

When you stringify a datetime.datetime or datetime.time object, it includes fractional seconds e.g. '2009-11-03 12:21:10.800641'. The default input formats for DateTimeField and TimeField do not expect the fractional seconds part.

This is irritating when using a ModelForm and populating directly without preprocessing the datetimes, for example in a REST API where the form data is generated automatically.

This patch not only needs tests, but also other improvements. It will fall on the face with dates f.e. in german format. The stupid check for '.' in the string representation will not do the right thing with "03.11.2009 12:21:10".
