You are very welcome to the design meetings, at the IRC channel, and on

But your report is clear to me (as native German who prefers English UI it's
always 'surprising' how numbers are converted). On the other hand, Stuarts
reply is also reasonable. And we will not change how numbers are converted. And
actually there are plenty of functions to deal with datetime.

What I could imagine is better feedback. When you insert 5-1-15 and press Enter
the text could fade into a grey M-D-Y (depending on how it works) that fades
into the final Jun/01/20015 (or whatever). Eike, what do you think?
