Is there interest in a more customizable timestamp?

If you set conserver to add a timestamp to each line of the log file,
the output looks like this:

[Mon Dec 20 14:46:56 PST 2004] blah blah blah

Which is ok, but kind of verbose.  It would be nice if this was more
customizable.  For example, we would like to see a more compact
representation that worked more like syslog, i.e.:

Dec 20 14:46:56: blah blah blah

or maybe this:

041220 14:46:56: blah blah blah

So at this point we are thinking about extending the timestamp
functionality with full strftime time specifications.  That way you
could choose just about any timestamp formatting you wanted.

Is this something others are interested in?
