As discussed on the mailing list, DateFormatter::parse() and 
DateFormater::localtime() should have the second argument 
($parse_pos) as a reference - it is supposed to "return" the 
position where an error occured, in case it could not parse 
the given value. ICU does have it this way, and I think PHP 
should, too. It's pretty valuable information, and if only for 
debugging purposes.
