How much the am/pm thing seems ugly to us, as a default setting it
is consistent with other defaults and especially the English C locale.
Anyone using another language has to change this anyway. I think it
makes sense to keep 12h clock as default.
Even out of defaults: In International places where English is
spoken, I send a custom English attribution with am/pm time.
