The examples provided within the INI are correct.  However, the list
provided within the INI is not an exhaustive list of all combinations

1            Local time, 2 digit year
2            Local time, 4 digit year
3            Local time, no year
1+128        UTC time, 2 digit year
2+128        UTC time, 4 digit year
3+128        UTC time, no year
1+64+128     UTC time, with label, 2 digit year   (old style mode)
2+64+128     UTC time, with label, 4 digit year
3+64+128     UTC time, with label, no year

4 does not exist.  Please note that that the timestampflags parameter is
the combination of two flags (64 or 128) plus one of the exclusive mode
options (1 or 2 or 3).  The modes are not bitmasks, and as such only one
may be picked at any time.  That is why "3" is listed as a distinct
option, and does not represent the combination of "1" with "2".

There are no plans to integrate such functionality into the client.

The client has always displayed its timestamps in the yearless UTC format,
and has no option to modify that behavior.
