can i change the options which is recognized by strftime
eg:
'%Y %m %d'  will apply the format of YYYY mm dd

can i do something like extending strftime to recognize 'YYYY mm dd'
instead ?

because right now , i am running the format string which i get(YYYY mm
dd) through a regex and converting them to the parameters which strftime
recognizes

or please do suggest alternate methods
