Sorry for leading you astray on the web page, and thank you for drawing my 
attention to the MHonArc converter software. Now, I don't know anything 
about this software, but looking at 
https://www.mhonarc.org/MHonArc/doc/resources/foluplitxt.html, it looks 
to me as though MHonArc already supports what I was suggesting with the 
$MSGLOCALDATE$ option. Sourceware is simply taking a default setting.

I think the change would be from the default:

<li><strong>$SUBJECT$</strong>
<ul><li><em>From:</em> $FROM$</li></ul></li>

to:

<li><strong>$SUBJECT$</strong>
<ul><li><em>From:</em> $FROM$, $MSGLOCALDATE$</li></ul></li>

Not saying that it's going to get done, but it doesn't appear to be quite 
the effort that you described.
