I've recently subscribed to this list and received my first "Summary of
Python tracker Issues". What I find annoying are the dates, for example:

     ACTIVITY SUMMARY (04/17/09 - 04/24/09)

3 x double-digits (have we learned nothing from Y2K? :-)) with the
_middle_ ones changing fastest!

I know it's the US standard, but Python is global. Could we have an
'international' style instead, say, year-month-day:

     ACTIVITY SUMMARY (2009-04-17 - 2009-04-24)

Thank you for your attention, etc.
