I'm interested in the comment #6: the correct way to do it is not really
%x and %X, but an user defined format, due to space constraints and the
fact that neither %x nor %X have a fixed format. What those escape
prints is left to the implementation, IIRC.

This said, changing the current strings to use %x is easy and I can do
it, but implementing a date format chooser is another story. I'm not
very motivated with graphical user interfaces... The %x solution may not
be perfect but I think it is a good starting point. It is better than
what it is now (overused translator) and uses the correct locale

Thanks a lot for giving us the right Bug ID :)
