*nod* It's just that the source/bin distribution on has
a logical YYMMDD format, so I had to look twice to see what was meant.
Personally I have no real preference for either YYMMDD (easily sortable
by stupid computers) or DDMMYY (more natural for dayly use, for me).
Did you know that even proper British usage, according to my dictionary,
is 10 March? (An alternative is March 10th). So in my neverending quest
to bring rationality to this world, I am even prepared to use the
(otherwise pretty irrational, units-wise) Brits as an example ;-)
