I'm somehow stuck on the following problem:

I defined a Date() schema field in one of my interfaces. I currently have a 
de-AT locale, so I'd like to enter the value of my date as e.g. "dd.MM.YYYY", 
e.g. "01.02.1980" in my z3c.form based form.

What happens is, that the locale silently assumes a format of "dd.MM.yy", 
which means, that the "YY / 80" is truncated and "01.02.19" is stored in my 
database, when updating.

So, I'd like to know if:

- It is possible to change the format to "dd.MM.yyyy", which is a lot more 
appropriate for my application (a birth date)
- Make the application more strict, meaning that no data is truncated in any 

I tried to stick my nose into i18n.locales but was somehow overwhelmed by what 
I found. However, the following somehow seems to explain it:
</dateFormatLength >
    <dateFormatLength type="medium">
           <dateFormat >
    </dateFormatLength >
    <dateFormatLength type="short">
           <dateFormat >
    </dateFormatLength >

Nevertheless I don't know if there's a way to select a specific dateFormat, 
e.g. "medium" in my case.
