[Freeswitch-dev] Custom date/time pronunciation

I've written a patch (http://jira.freeswitch.org/browse/FS-1889) to 
allow more control over date and time pronunciation from the 'say' 
application which allows Asterisk SayUnixTime style constructs to be 
pronounced. Usage is based on strftime formatting codes with additions 
to pronounce words like 'hours', 'minutes', 'at' etc. so for example:

<action application="say" data="en custom_date_time pronounced 

It's currently only available for mod_say_en as I don't have any other 
human language skills to be sure of changing the other mod_say_xx's 
without causing a regression. So my question is, is it going to be OK to 
submit this change for mod_say_en only?

Otherwise, would anybody like to help me port it to other language 'say' 
modules - it's not doing anything particularly smart, just 'say'ing 
files based on the order of formatting codes passed in for the most part?

The most recent proposed patch is fs1889_2011-06-08.txt on the above 
mentioned jira if you want to have a look.
