Summary: Jabber vCard birthday - should be strict

Initial Comment:
Regarding the SetInfo form for jabber accounts:
The birthday field is just a freetext field, so I feel
insecure about how I should format the date.
Since this doc http://www.jabber.org/jeps/jep-0054.html
states that it "must be ISO 8601 formatted" - I think
it would be a good idea if Gaim provided a more strict
form here, and then converted it to ISO 8601 at back-end.
I don't know what would be the best syntax so that it
looks sensible in all locales, but something like:

{ Birthday: [Year] [Month] [Day] }

* Then the "Year" field would only accept 4-digit [0-9]
* "Month" could preferably be a dropdown menu with
translated names. Are there issues speaking against
such a solution?
* "Day" should only accept 1 or 2 digits 1-31

Yeah, that would be nice! But maybe it would be good if
there could be some alternative input method alongside, that
allows faster and easier input than if you're using the
calendar. Or if there were a way to use keyboard input in
order to jump to a certain year in the calendar, that would
be OK.

Perhaps the GTK+ calendar widget could be used instead.
