The problem with that is that I don't want every comment in my Bugzilla
bug to have a timestamp of the form:
Mon 01 Jan 1990 12:00:00 AM BST
Ideally, we'd keep using the current, international
time2str(), where you can supply a format.
Maybe (probably) I'm missing something here. If you can provide some JS
that turns 1000001234 (server side secs-since-Jan-1970 value) to a
client-side 2002-03-03 11:43 , I'll be pleased and impressed.
It still won't necessarily make it the right thing to do, though. For
example, we need to evaluate the effect of a load of scattered
document.write()s on the page display time of a large bug with many
comments. I _believe_ the presence of document.write() means rendering
has to be delayed on Mozilla, but I could be wrong about that.
