Additionally: it seems like some BSDs (i.e. Mac OS X) and downstream Linux
distros that already patch for this use a lowercase am / pm in the British
locale:

$ LC_TIME=en_US.UTF-8 date +%r
03:38:02 PM
$ LC_TIME=en_GB.UTF-8 date +%r
03:38:08 pm
$

Personally, I prefer this. It seems more "right" to me, although I don't have
an authority on that.
