What is this, the "00:41 2002-11-26 +0300", Liorean? Is it a weather
forecast or a credit card information? But it isn't a traditional, human
date and it isn't the new, next standard, date (YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssTZD).
I can't remember how many those thoroughly researched standards for
dates existed in my life. Where they are now? And how I have tired!
Please, leave me the option, the freedom, at least, to choose on my own
which date format to use.

Regards,
Cyril, Esq.
