Ability to alter date format

Is there currently any method of modifying the date format from the default m/d/yyyy? If not, consider this a vote for one!

We want to utilize the shipping label custom fields to the fullest extent, and that means cutting down on characters. For one of the fields we are trying to fit both the automatic [Order Date] & [Ship Date] tags, all within 26 characters. Currently, the smallest we can get it down to is 27 with the following:

"OR mm/dd/yyyy SH mm/dd/yyyy"

Rather than truncating the 'OR' or 'SH' any further, it would be much easier if it were possible to use an alternative date format such as mm/dd/yy, May 5th, mm-dd, and so on.
