[NTG-context] Date with three-letter month

Hello All,

I have consulted the manuals and even the source (core-con.tex) but I 
cannot find a way of getting a three-letter month using the \date command.
For example, I would like to display today's date as 23-Apr-08.  This 
gives a short display suitable for use in a margin, but avoids the 
confusion of American (04-23-08) vs English (23-04-08) ordering when using 
numbers.
Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Richard.
