That would require an additional SQL query each time through the loop,
which seems like undue expense.  It's also not terribly friendly to the
goal of localization, I should think, given the limited number of
datestyle options and the fact that none of them actually change day or
month names to non-English choices.  And it would imply changing the
timestamps from psql's timezone to the backend's.  While that might have
been a good way to do it in a green field, it's not the way \watch has
worked in the past, and given the lack of complaints I'm disinclined
to change that.

                        regards, tom lane
