That script is for inserting a date *header* rather than entering a date into
the reply itself.  I suspect, it could be modifed to do that, but like you, my
bash knowledge isn't up to the task.

The date you're setting up using the %D{fmt} method in the Reply->Templates
section of preferences is for the attribution of quoted mail.  Therefore, it
has to be the date of the message you're replying to.

That option would be handy at times.
