I think that the patch is not the right approach. As I understand DD/MM/YYYY will be used only when american format cannot be used. It'll be difficult for applications users to realize that 12/01/2008 is first of december, but 13/01/2008 is 13th of January.

I propose to use a i18n setting (stored in django(js).po) so parse the date according to current locale. ISO format could be used in all cases as fall back format.

What approach are you talking about?

This patch only adds a new function to parse the European date format. When or how to use this new function is another question that is not asked or answered by this patch.

Maybe a typo error in the Regex expression:

    re: /(\d{1,2})\.(\d{1,2}).(\d{4})/
--> re: /(\d{1,2}).(\d{1,2}).(\d{4})/

One extra \ character ?
