I'm missing the option for milliseconds in the date()-function and others. Especially while generating unique identifiers for files it's very handy. Is it possible to integrate this option to the date()-method?

Expected result:
2006-11-07 20:24:40:992 or someting like that?

This can not work with the standard date() function, as the unix timestamps it uses are integers and not capable of representing microseconds. The new DateTime class does support this internally, and for date_format() and DateTime::format() we could support this.
