Nooo, please keep week number.  For some people it's actually really

New d-d-l rule: no one gets to say 'it is useful' without explaining
their use case :)

I use it daily too. The current clock applet only shows week numbers when a secret gconf key is enabled though, if I am not mistaken?

The week numbers are used for planning projects and work and vacations and things like that, it's a lot easier and less error prone than using full dates. I am not sure if it's a European thing perhaps? At least in Sweden we use them for planning all the time (in school, at work, ...).

For instance, it's perfectly normal here to say "this year, I will have my vacation weeks 32 to 35" and nobody will look at you and wonder if you're crazy ;)
