 I agree that it should be easy to get the standard date format without to figure out a strftime string to pass to the dateformat option, and that it should be possible to use UTC.
 I am reluctant to make them the default. People should be able to upgrade to new versions without having unwanted changes in behavior unless there is a compelling reason for making the new behavior the default.
 Unless I hear strong arguments to the contrary, I will plan to add these new features under new options (named isodate and gmt?).
