    ls(1): New long format for named locales
    The use of the basic version of ISO 8601 was not very popular.  After
    a discussion on IRC, the Long Format of named locales is the following:
      DD-MMM-YYYY hh:mm
      DD is day number with leading zeros
     MMM is abbreviated month *in english* (regardless of locale)
    YYYY is 4-digit year
      hh is 24-hour with leading zeros
      ss is seconds with leading zeros
