Err, (IIRC) the reason Nuutti's suggesting one and only one format is
because this realease (1.0) isn't focused on il8n. The format he
suggested isn't going to make everybody happy, but it's (IIRC) better
than what we have. Certainly to store the data this way in BDB makes
eminent sense. Storing weekday information is useless, that can be
easily calculated. (Esp. if the weekday needs to get converted into a
non-Gregorian calendar like the Hebrew calendar.)

What needs to happen later is that SVN needs to suck in as many OS
specific data about what the end user's date/time formatting preferences
are and use those. Sounds like a job for APR if you ask me.

FYI,
Bill
