[Users] localized_date_fmt

Some years ago, it seems the idea of a localized date_fmt for reply/forward
templates was proposed.


Was this implemented yet?  At the moment I've got 3.9.1 on ubuntu and 3.9.3
on windows - I know I'm a little out of date but I don't see a way to use a
local timezone in my versions.

I would find this useful, because for most of the people I regularly
correspond with, the mail server sets the timezone in the date header to
the mail server's own location rather than the sender's actual timezone -
so the timezone in the date header isn't really meaningful.  It makes my
replies look very strange when I'm responding to someone who sits at the
desk next to me, and my quoted email has a timezone that's several hours

It could be viewed as a broken mail server setup, or perhaps a security
feature to hide location information about senders.  Regardless, I can't
control the server behavior - I can only control how my own mail client
