It appears that the natural output of Date[] has
year, month, day, etc which puts the least significant value 
on the right, just like most other numbering systems. I've 
always wondered why most people don't use this simple 
convention for dates.  I believe it is the SI standard 
format. Amazingly, various branches of the USA gov are 
beginning to do this-- slowly. Today would be 2007 Sept. 02.
