Sadly this is true. To do it, we need a new format specifier, a new method in
the date_facet, etc. I'm thinking maybe %dd for the specifier? And then
you'd want a method to set the format like this:

    date_facet* df = new date_facet();

where the %- controls the sign output. Of course it could default to
something like this.
