This compiler is so smart to find out that I'm passing %c to strftime()
(unlike 2.95.2, which can be fooled by placing %c to a separate constant),
yet it's so dumb to print this warning at all!

"%c" is used in the "insert Date/time" command.  User settings should be
respected, at least in the code that outputs text for the user.  I know
that "%c" is correct here.  There is no simple way to suppress the

I reported this problem to the gcc maintainers.  They acknowledged it
(it's my understanding of the reply I got), but didn't fix it in

Unless you have an idea how to suppress this warning without doing insane
stuff (like moving time_format to another file or removing "const" from
it), I'm not going to fix it.

GNU Coding Standards say: "Don't make the program ugly to placate `lint'."
Ironically, this time it applies to GNU C Compiler.
