eshell/date is an alias for `current-time-string'. The fact that this Lisp
function accepts arguments, and those arguments can be passed on the Eshell
command-line, isn't something I thought of at the time.

In hindsight, a separate eshell/date function should have been created that
would handle its arguments like the system command.
