options on date

Just a thought...

busybox seems to ignore the -s switch on date.

However - for the separately compiled "date" I looked at, -s switches the
date format over to something completely different.


 date -s "...." 
 would work under busybox, but give an error under Linux... even when 
 date "same string" 
 would actually work fine under Linux
Is there an argument for busybox rejecting the -s option as
"unimplemented" since we don't implement the data format it implies???
