 The ISO's 8601 specification states that digitized dates should be
 specified in most to least significant time period, separated by hyphens.
 YYYY-MM-DD is the recommended format. The closest default we have
 currently is YYYY/MM/DD, but I'd like to see this international standard
 represented in the default list.

 [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601#General_principles Wikipedia's page
 (accessed 2014-06-03)] has more information — see the third bullet of
 General Principles. Here is the ISO's [http://www.iso.org/iso/iso8601 8601
 FAQ page].

 This patch adds this standard format to the default array of date formats.
