Side note: this is probably my least favorite of the formats.

I'm playing with making all "today" dates just use the relative
format, and then the "a couple of days ago" dates would then have the

format.

But since it's _explicitly_ about a "human legible" format, I think
the format could be a bit fluid, and things like that might be tweaked
later. Anybody who would script this would be crazy.

I'm more looking for "no, that's just stupid" comments, or "no, you're
not the only one who has wanted this" kinds of replies.
