Parameter: $time Time in epoc seconds
Parameter: $format Format type, optional. Default e.g. " TWiki::Plugins::VERSION 1.010 (31 Dec 2002) - 19:30", can be "iso" (e.g. "2002-12-31T19:30Z"), "rcs" (e.g. "2001/12/31 23:59:59", "http" for HTTP header format (e.g. "Thu, 23 Jul 1998 07:21:56 GMT")

I was hoping to add yet another format: age, or time difference. Sometimes all you need is how old most recent change is - if it is minutes or hours, display age in munutes/hours. If it is old (days), display date, without hours.
