[Rd] Formatting of times in time series objects

Although print.ts() formats times pleasantly when it prints
regular multivariate time series (at least for suitable series)
(try e.g.
 > xy <- cbind(window(AirPassengers, end =1950), 1:11)
 > window(xy, end=1949)
           xy seqno
Jan 1949 112     1
I can find no immediate way to extract the pleasantly
formatted date.  I am wondering what plans there may be
to modify format() to provide a choice of formats for the times
in ts objects [presumably via as.Date(), rather than by code
such as in print.ts()], or if some other solution is in view.
