Good point Scott.  Maybe we should consider which standard a programmer would be less likely to confuse or
misinterpret.  There are obviously going to be many 3rd party clients in the future, probably some sloppy ones
also if Corel is planning on making one, and we don't want the date getting messed up.
Is the time date stamping going to be done on the server-side?  I hope so.  If it is, maybe my above point isn't
as important.  :)
