I have a problem about using nonstandard date & time formats in a context
where it's not good to customize it.  For example, is that 11th of July
or 7th or November?  The ISO standard format is unambiguous (and lacks
the nationality load that makes me angry about these things :-).

We need all the following info:
  - whether this is a custom build, a snapshot build or a release
  - when was this build made
  - who did it (if custom build)

Your suggestion will fail to deliver the first one.  And it's much
more cryptic.
