There was some discussion earlier about where all of this is supposed to 
go.  We could put some pre-fab formats into FastDateFormat 
(FastDateFormatter).  If we did this, DateUtils pretty much goes away 
(for now).  That's not necessarily a bad thing.

I kind of like this method.  It came from the original code we borrowed 
from Ant.  When you say not localized do you mean its not locale 
specific (ex. not useful for people in non-english countries)?  If so, I 
do think you have a point there.
