No, the client doesn't do anything with it in this patch, though that's
not a bad idea. I just did the server since it is more likely to leave
persistent logs laying around.
As a side note, the api hooks would allow the timestamp format to be
changed on the fly as well, if someone wanted to write a command line
tool to do it (ala pvfs2-set-debugmask).
