This is a basic Drupal 7 example module of leveraging custom date formats via a module with drupal. These formats can then be used for Views, nodes, theming and more. This has come in really handy for some client projects over the past months so I thought I would share this. I have no plans to release this as a full module, it will just stay here in a sandbox.
