If you can give me a java class that has a method that takes in a string
in this format and a date and gives me a formatted date, I might build in
support for it, or at least make it easily extensible. However, since the
class and syntax I'm using is included with the JDK (see SimpleDateFormat
class) and is as rich if not richer than the good ol' strftime syntax, I
doubt anyone's bothered to write such a formatter...
