Internationa time and date formats (24 hour clock!) ⏲

Any chance that user will be allowed to select international time and date formats in the web-ui? Well, as I think about it, I realize my main concern is the time format, i.e. the 24 hour clock, but while I’m at it I might as well mention dates. And first day of the week conventions (should they ever become relevant).

I don’t want to add a switch in the Setting page just for this. Ideally the web GUI should be able to detect the locale and set to the correct format automatically, but it doesn’t appear that go provides a method for doing this.

So what does that mean? No, but yes, but no?

If there will be only one fixed format, I’d suggest that this should be an internationally recognized format, such as ISO 8601.
