Yup, it's funny, Subversion used to use CVS's date parser (the same
bison file), so in the early days you could type something like 'svn
update -r {"two weeks ago"}'. But just before 1.0, we decided it
would be a nightmare to support, so quickly wrote our own date-parser
with a very limited set of formats.

Still, I agree, we should be able to parse "2005-7-5" as if it were
"2000-07-05". And it would be nice to use "2005/07/05" as well.
