Sorry that I kind of highjacked the mail thread
to request a specific output format instead of
concentrating on the implementation.

And sorry I cannot think on how to get an ISO 8601
format derived from "__DATE__" or "__TIME__":

Unfortunately C99 (according to  WG14/N1256 ISO/IEC 9899:TC3, section 6.10.8)
specifies "__DATE__" as
... [a character string literal of the form "Mmm dd yyyy", where] ...
but would also allows for an [implementation-defined valid date] ...
