Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
This is a follow up request of request #3198 that was closed with "This is sort of implemented". Even though dates show in the format of the language to which Chummer5a is localized, you cannot otherwise control the date format.

Describe the solution you'd like
Allow the user to select the date format.

Additional context
Dates are already saved in character files in ISO format:

<expense>
  <guid>4c93fddb-de53-4616-8c04-f9109548cf06</guid>
  <date>2019-09-18T21:00:17</date>

Maybe we should automatically make a en-GB and set the language according to the location to US only for users being there... any thoughts?

Yeah, but what if you're en-US and prefer to use yyyy-mm-dd?

It occurred to me when I saw darksnakezero's comment in #3888 that that other date formats could be implemented - in Britain the date format often used is dd/mm/yyyy (or dd.mm.yyyy). And of course the short and long versions available for the date in the windows date, such as dd mmm yyyy.

Because then we support #3847 as well. My preference would be that we use the system time by default, but give users an option to change it to whatever.
