While I personally very much dislike AM/PM times, there is something to
be said for 24-hour clock times being incorrect for a "en_US" locale.
The bulk of people used to this locale think in AM/PM times. Showing
24-hour clock times is contrary to the cultural expectation of the bulk
of users. In my book, that's a bug. It's pedants like me, and you ;-),
that need to go the extra, eh, distance (take your pick of units ;-).
