Millisecond precision in datetime fields

Globalization & Custom Schema

Currently datetime fields don't support millisecond precision. Even if you work with Datetime objects (which do support millisecond precision), when you store them in database the milliseconds are lost.

This is a problem if you need to work with a high time precision, that can be worked around in some ways, for example storing the Unix time in a number field, but it seems to be much more natural that a Datetime field would be able of storing such precision.
