You are right. However there are legitimate cases where I might want both.
That is, override the locale-specific month names using a facet _and_ choose
a strftime-style date format independently. So I think that you need both a
facet (for storing locale-dependent information for %a, %A, %b, %B, %c, %p,
%r, %x, %X, and the other locale-dependent specifiers) and a manipulator for
the format string.
