Strongly support adding it to core.  I just added 3 separate
definitions to toolbox.php to facilitate this sort of things with
recipes that declare a dependency on toolbox.

SDV($FmtPV['$LastModifiedYMD'], 'strftime("%Y-%m-%d",
$page["time"])');  // or %F
SDV($FmtPV['$LastModifiedISO'], 'strftime($_GLOBALS["TimeISOFmt"],

Obviously whatever is chosen for core will quickly become "intuitive"
as we all get used to it so in a sense it doesn't matter.  My thinking
was that $LastModified already contains a time element so I was
looking at either $LastModifiedSeconds or $LastModifiedUnix to clearly
indicate what it represented.  But either of the other 2 y'all have
suggested would work fine and I'm certainly not going to complain.

My thinking on the $LastModifiedYMD and $LastModifiedISO is that they
are both more "standard" representations of date/time and at some
point or another they will be useful and could be legitimate
candidates for core as well.  Having said that, you can always {(ftime
...)} the unix time into either of the others so I suppose it's maybe
not that big a deal.
