 I'm confused about the value of FORMAT in {{{date(FORMAT)}}}.

 I wanted to use "%B %e, %Y", but I have two problems.  With the
quotes, I get an "eval: End of file during parsing" message. Without
 the quotes, processing stops at the comma, expanding to "May 14"
 instead of "May 14, 2009".


Wow, I knew this report was coming, but I had not at all
expected it so fast.


"," is the (undocumented) argument separator for Org macros.
Actually, I am changing it now to ";", so that your example
should now directly work.  To include a semicolon in the date
format, use "\;".

Actually, I am changing it back to ",", this is more natural,
please escape "," like "\'" after your next update from  git....
