      Description

      Based on various standards which the date/time conversion character suffixes are
      inspired by, we defined 'p' and 'P' for lower and upper case am/pm markers (case
      switched in beta2 due to request 4989961).

      In bug 4962433 we introduced the set of conversions which are capital letters,
      e.g. 'X', 'E', and 'T'. There are now four date/time conversion to access the
      same set of markers: tp, tP, Tp, and TP. The user must now understand
      conversion percedence to reliably predict whether upper or lower case will be
      returned.

      It would be less confusing if we simply dropped the redundant 'P' date/time suffix.
