Hey Andrew!

No worries. The msgheader datetime stamp is as the current ftn standards call
for. The only place the proposed datetime stamp will be found is in the first
printed line of the msgbody as demonstrated above in this reply, showing as '%F
%T %z' in strftime-speak, which we both already agreed is the most desirable
output, although in this case it isn't hidden in a kludge so everyone should
see it in it's full glory.

For now I believe this to be the best way to deal with this issue until the
proposal runs it's proper course, whatever that turns out to be. I am still
feeling my way through all this and muchly appreciate your patience.

Life is good,
