Attached is a new two-patch series implementing finer-grained control
over the format of clocksum durations (only in overlays and the
mode-line; the format of the CLOCK entries stored in org files remains
unchanged and hard-coded, as before).

The first patch:
- defines a new org-minutes-to-clocksum-string function (replacing
  org-minutes-to-hh:mm-string) for formatting time durations according to
  customization options;
- unifies the formatting of clocksum durations throughout org-colview.el
  and org-clock.el by always calling org-minutes-to-clocksum-string to do
  the formatting;
- extends the org-time-clocksum-format defcustom, allowing it to either
  be a single format string (as before), or a list of between 1 and 3
  format strings for the minutes, hours and days components of a time
- retains the org-time-clocksum-use-fractional and
  org-time-clocksum-fractional-format defcustoms, whose meaning is

The second patch:
- further extends org-time-clocksum-format to allow separate month and
  year components (where a month is taken to be 30 days, a year to be 365

Both patches maintain backwards-compatibility with any existing
customizations users may have made to these variables. They just add an
additional type for org-time-clocksum-format.

The reason for retaining separate org-time-clocksum-format and
org-time-clocksum-fractional-format's is that (i) it doesn't make much
sense to have a list of formats for separate components when using the
fractional format (see Nicolas' examples earlier in this discussion
thread); (ii) it maintains backwards-compatibility; (iii) it side-steps
the issue of making users customize the format whenever they modify

I'm not wedded to new customization type I've used in
org-time-clocksum-format. If you prefer a plist, or a different ordering
of the format strings in the list, or a different customization ui,
that's fine by me.
