[Rd] Formatting of times in time series objects

Although print.ts() formats times pleasantly when it prints regular multivariate time series (at least for suitable series) (try e.g.
> xy <- cbind(window(AirPassengers, end =1950), 1:11)
> window(xy, end=1949)

           xy seqno
Jan 1949 112     1

I can find no immediate way to extract the pleasantly formatted date. I am wondering what plans there may be to modify format() to provide a choice of formats for the times in ts objects [presumably via as.Date(), rather than by code such as in print.ts()], or if some other solution is in view.
