I did get some answers. First, the issue on the default precision of
decimal numbers is settable. That solves the one of the issues. There
is no good solution to the date format. One solution would be to use
the Swedish locale, and that would set the default date format to
yy-mm-dd, but in this case the date must be yyyy-mm-dd. But, we are not
talking about a large number of fields.=20
