In the live plugin - http://live.vdr-developer.org/ - we use a two fold
Dates are formatted with strftime(3) which obeys for some of the format
specifiers the current locale of the VDR. Additionally we 'translate' the
format strings with the standard i18n support of VDR (e.g tr() macro). This
allows the localization people to tailor to their special needs.
