Display the real date using Calculated Date/Time field instead of the interval

Description

In connection with
https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/240338/misc-custom-fields-display-version-release-date-in-issue?page=1

When using a formula like:
<!-- @@Formula:
Collection versions = issueObject.getFixVersions();
if (versions==null || versions.size()!=1)
return null;

version = versions.iterator().next();
return version.getReleaseDate();
-->

On a Jira issue field we get "in 4 months"

Can we force it to display the real date ?

David's response:

Unfortunately, the date is displayed using JIRA's default settings.

If you want custom formatting, you need to create a Text field instead - but of course this won't be searcheable or sortable as a string then...

I believe I could make an improvement to the calculated Date/Time fields to support selecting a different formatting option (I'll need to chek though), but this would require some work. Can you post an enhnacement request on our JIRA?
