Well, as a CVS and Subversion user, I *never* use absolute dates
(mainly because the MM/DD/YY format is non-sense for me; probably
ambiguous, misleading and counterintuitive for many European users).
I just tried the ISO format in the past (with CVS), because this was
the most logical way to provide a date, but it didn't work. Another
problem with Subversion is that the date format isn't documented
with "svn help" (or if it is, I don't know where).
