    Pardon me, but I agree with earlier posts that the US standard
    format is abominable:
    In a text sort, you need two sort keys to sort on dates.
    (otherwise, a sort program which allows you to specify what
    format the sort key should use)
    In 2001-2012, there will be a lot of confusion among people
    with international contacts/habits.
