  are you kidding me?  "check the FM", you say, and then _you_ request a
  reference that you can actually use?  gimme a break!

  please provide a suitable reference to the "FM" you think supports your
  position ("no"), and then we can start talking.

I believe in life after Year 2000, four-digit years, and 24-hour clocks.  I
believe in ISO 8601 as the only external time representation.  I believe in
a monotonically increasing number of milliseconds as the only internal time
representation.  I pledge to fight time zones and other time formats.  Amen
