Description:
------------
---
From manual page: http://www.php.net/function.date
---
Is there any chance the common Y-m-d H:i:s can be summarized as "Q" for the common MySQL datetime format. I have written this sequence hundreds of times (You're the man now dog, Hamlet in space?)
Seeing as MySQL and PHP are so commonly tied together I think this could be a very useful shortcut to add.

https://www.google.com/search?q=%22Y-m-d+H%3Ai%3As%22 over 1.7 million results
Easier and quicker to memorize.


Test script:
---------------
<?php 
echo date('Q'); // Prints Q

Expected result:
----------------

Hi mark: You could add the function by yourself. Boz the new feature could affect 
other parameter of Data() function. And the patch you could try for your own 
version PHP.

@joergybehrens I checked the parameter Q, which is not the key word of parameter. 
It can be used for the function. But the problem is personal problem, which is 
difficult to be pulled in git.

This is already existent. You can format a date using 'c' and insert that into a DATETIME-field in MySQL. The Offset is ignored. 

If you insert "2004-02-12T15:19:21+04:00" it will show up on the database as "2004-02-12 15:19:21". So make sure the datetimes you are inserting all have the same offset.
