Description

Since the big strftime changes of past month strftime gives a capitalised month abbreviation like so:

'%v'=>[' 3-FEB-2001' {:mday=>3,:mon=>2,:year=>2001}]

This is different from before where:

'%v'=>[' 3-Feb-2001',{:mday=>3,:mon=>2,:year=>2001}],

Is there a reason for this change or was it accidental? It breaks with all previous ruby versions and is also inconsistent with for example %b or %c.

%v must be nonstandard.
pd version gives "21-MAY-2011" for today.
some BSD dist's strftime gives "21-May-2011" that is also my choice.

this time i adopted pd version which is same as Time's one.
the one of reasons is "VMS like" if v means VMS.

i'm not sure, but, anyway, revert.
