Do you use an alias?

The choice to use variable length for has been discussed to avoid any drawbacks
and the main constraint is to use short words when space is tight. Some other
languages use longer abmon than 3 characters.

This has been made to be fix sprintf %b in graphical application like the GTK+
calendar (users were puzzled about 'jui', 'juin' or 'juillet'?) and to conform
to the official French abbreviations.

1 - abmon:
jan -> janv.
fév -> févr.
mar -> mars
avr -> avril
mai -> mai
jui -> juin
jul -> juil.
aoû -> août
sep -> sept.
oct -> oct.
nov -> nov.
déc -> déc.

PS: ls -l --time-style=locale doesn't change anything...
