Does anyone happen to know which locale to set for date/time to get a

yyyy/mm/dd or yyyy-mm-dd
Or, if no such locale exists, then is it possible to generate one?

You need to generate ja_JP locale, though.
I did this, and the right format is used, but unfortunately the '-'s
were replaced by other characters. This is somewhat frustrating; for
starters, why is the default date format on the 'internationalist'
Debian OS the illogical US standard? And second, why is there no
easy-to-use ISO format date? Right now I'm using the German standard,
which is better than what I had, but still not what I want.
