As long as we avoid the problem that email has of email clients all having many
different date formats.  Which one is it that does that?  Im confused.

I think we should go with the date that is the most effecient for compatibility
and readability by the code.  I don't think we should go with straight binary,
but something that is more code effecient should be better then something that
is more human readable.  The client is going to have to parse the date apart
anyways so that it can display it in whichever way the user chooses (or are we
not going to give them a choice?)

I hope my input is valid.
