Made leery by the adverse outcomes of some following this hint, I just recently d/l'd Wolf Software's wClock and am so impressed that I have already chipped in on it (it is donation-ware). It is a nearly perfect app, with just the right feature set and no more. Now, my menubar shows

in Aqua blue. No nagging fear of unintended consequences either.

This has many more options than DesktopCalendar as far as date and time formats available for the menu bar! If he added the desktop calendar part I'd dump DesktopCalendar and donate too!

Yes, wClock is great, except that the only internationally standard date format (ISO & W3C) is not included: YYYY-MM-DD (e.g. 2004-06-13) which I use exclusively, as it is the only format that is application independent and can be used for sorting even if it's just plain text...
I've signalled this omission to the developer and will certainly donate if he includes it.

It doesn't by default. As jpkelly says further down, you can modify the Defaults.plist. At the bottom of the dateFormats I've added: "%Y-%m-%d", Formats are the same as Unix, do a man strftime for details.
