Date and Time logic on the dashboard should be associated with user's date/time settings

I've noticed that on some areas of the dashboard, the dates shown are
formatted according to the translation file (<locale>.mo, if it exists).
This is true (at least) on the Pages' and Posts' lists.
My suggestion is that it would make more sense to read the format from
Settings > General > Date Format since right now it can get a bit
confusing for a user having defined a format of, say "Y-m-d" but seing a
format of "Y\d\m" because the .mo says so. This is particularly
pertinent to MU where different users can choose different date and time
formats, but applies to wp.org, mu.org and wp.com.
This certainly has implications on the .pot but I'm not too sure yet on how to patch that.
