Does strftime support AM/PM for different languages?

Feature #8181: New flag for strftime that supports adding ordinal suffixes to numbers

This is my first issue on the ruby tracker--hopefully I'm asking in the right place?

It would be nice if you could use strftime to generate dates with ordinal suffixes.  I propose the addition of another flag to support this: the @ character.

The intended usage would be:
> Date.parse('2013-03-01').strftime('%B %@d, %Y')
 => "March 1st, 2013"
> Date.parse('2013-03-02').strftime('%B %@d, %Y')
 => "March 2nd, 2013"
> Date.parse('2013-03-03').strftime('%B %@d, %Y')
 => "March 3rd, 2013"

...etc

Assuming this would be accepted, I'd be happy to implement the feature.  Could someone tell me how to proceed?
