Well, if you have questions just ask. There are many reasons why there isn't
more documenation of the generic part of the library -- the primary ones
being I don't believe I'm done modifying it and that it is an implementation
detail for 98% of the users.

No, ptime is a non-adjusted time representation. So it can be used to
represent either UTC or a local time. However, if it is a local time the
user is required to keep that information externally. In the next release of
the library there will be a local_date_time and time_zone classes that
provide full support for local time representations.

Yes, it is currently limited to the 2 specified resolutions. However, I have
helped, and will help anyone that needs other resolutions. There is some
refactoring and that needs to be done before this is offered as a documented
feature of the library.
