Minor, but trailing/leading spaces throw date/time fields.

Believe it or not this has come up on two separate occasions now, so I thought I'd submit the patch.

I'll push to a design decision, in the past these issues have been brushed off with a "create your own subclass" but I like the idea.

In fact, I'd be tempted to put a clean_strip attribute on Field (defaulting to False for most, overridden to True default for date/time fields) since this is a common request. But that's just me dreaming :)

The other ticket isn't a real-dupe. This particular data type is a no-brainer. We should strip the spaces before strptime'ing. Accepted.
