Agree, it should.
The date on the boot disk is the output of "date +%x", which in turn is
the output of strftime((out, out_length, "%x", time). %x outputs the
date using the proper format for the locale selected. For example, for
LANG=C it uses mm/dd/yy, for LANG=es it uses dd/mm/yy. As one of my goals
for slink was i18n, (there are several translations already), I'm not
quite happy with the idea of using a hardcoded format...
Why not just use `date +%Y-%m-%d'? That's the format (YYYY-MM-DD) ISO
