That's more or less a consequence of the changes I had to
make for this. A day can now be given either as a simple
number ("day of month") or as YYYY-MM-DD. Therefore 'd'
is also possible.

Note, though, that a and d are only for _input_ to VDR.
A tool that reads timer definitions from SVDRP would only
need to be able to handle a for complatibility with older
VDR versions. VDR versions after 1.3.22 will write only
formats b, c or e.
