Oh, that's a perfectly valid question.  B-)

By the way, there seems to be a formatting bug with "zone"
when specifying wide fields with "leading" zeros.  For example,
if you specify the Date: field this way

1) %(date2local{text})%08(zone{text})%>%>"

You get

     Tue, 16 Dec 2014 23:24:30 -0500 0000-480

I'm guessing negative integers were not expected by the
padding function?  And perhaps it was also fixed with 1.6
(or afterward)?
