Hi all,

it seem org-mode has some support for dates of the form dd.mm.[yyyy].

This is a popular notation in germany and probably elsewhere, but the 
support is undocumented and apparently very limited.

For example,

06.03. => 2012-06-03

but adding a time like

03.06. 17:00  => today's date

This latter case seems equivalent to

shub shub => today's date

So for me, as I like the notation, perhaps it could be fixed to allow 
for dates + times?

Alternatively, the silent failure seems dangerous and should be removed. 
I'm OK with accepting no input as today, but non-parseable input 
shouldn't be accepted.

I'm looking into this, but I don't think I'm likely to come up with a fix.
