I think you may misunderstand the issue -- you're right that tla never 
uses the Date entry in the patch logs (instead it uses Standard-date), 
however, RFC 822 reserves Date as a header entry and also specifies the 
formatting it uses.  Consequently, attempting to use a strict RFC 822 
parser to load a patch log will error when it finds the bad header entry.

Since tla doesn't need to read (well, parse at least) the Date header 
entry back in, I think we'd be fine simply changing the output format. 
Only scripts that rely on it being non-RFC-822-compliant will break.
