Here are some ideas for new tokens that could be used
in ID3 tags and file names to represent dates so the
user can create a string with any format for dates:

YY - two digit year
YYYY - four digit year
MM - two digit month
MTH - Month abbreviation (Jan, Feb Mar etc.)
MONTH - Month spelled out (January, February, etc.)
D - One or Two digit day of the month as needed
DD - Two digit day of the month
DDD - Three digit day of the year (1 to 365)
DY - Day abrieviation (Mon, Tue, Wed etc)
DAY - Day spelled out (Monday, Tuesday etc)

So today ${YYMMDD} would be "050510" or ${MTH}
would be "May". If I want to spell it out I would
use "${MONTH} ${D}, ${YYYY}" to get todays date
of "May 10, 2005".

    Additional request
    It would be nice to have a special token for ${RSS_PubDate}
    that would translate the published date into the
    format "YYMMDD" if an RSS_PubDate tag exists or default
    to todays date if there is no RSS_PubDate in the feed.
    Maybe call it ${RSS_Pdate}? This would be useful for sorting
    files by date, regardless of where the date comes from.

    Just a quick note to second this request. That would be a
    very nice feature.
