Dates in international standard format are wrongly interpreted
PyEphem's Date class appears to accept dates in international standard (ISO 8601) format, but in fact it mis-interprets them. For example,
>>> from ephem import *
It would be nice if international standard dates were accepted, but if this is not possible, then it would be better if incorrectly formatted dates caused an exception (e.g. ValueError) to be raised rather than being silently accepted but mis-interpreted.
