hours * 60 + minutes (integer)
hours * 60 + minutes + seconds / float(60)
hours * 60 + minutes + seconds / float(60) + fractional_seconds / float(60)
The second interpretation would make errors 60 times less likely to occur, and if the fractional seconds are taken into account the probability is very small indeed. The documentation does not mention how the conversion is done.
