Setting $DateTimeFormat controls the default your users get, there are
some examples of defining 'custom' ones, such as ISO without seconds,
or RFC2822 without seconds.  If there's an option already which is
'close' to what you want, you might be able to do that.

Otherwise, if you need something wholly custom, it's a pretty simple
plugin to add to the list, I've written one or two:

you can see it's a tiny amount of perl code at the bottom of the file,
most of the text is documentation:
