Yes I can guarentee the last four fields be in that date format.
Actually I think that solved it. I'll split on whitespaces into
an array, and remove the first and last four fields, and then join
whatever's left. That should do it. I was stuck thinking how to
parse it left to right.
Thanks for making look at the problem slightly differently.
