Definitely +1 on doing customizability this way, and I'm even neutral
on the question of printing out nothing if the user doesn't specify an
"extra" format.

I would only ask that we print out the extra stuff by default until
this customizability is implemented, just to humor those who really
depend on it :-).

(Btw, I think it's fine to change that default output once we *do*
have the customizability. That would be incompatible only in an
overly literal sense; the part of the date that is important for
compatibility purposes -- the first part -- wouldn't be changing.)
