OpenERP defaults to using the MM/DD/YYYY in the GTK client, but I want to use YYYY-MM-DD. How can I change it?

First, an administrator needs to add a new language choice.
Next, the users have to choose the new language. Either they can do it themselves through the User: Preferences menu item, or an administrator can do it for them through the Administration: Users: Users menu item.
