I'd vote for the ability to change that as even some English people use 24hr
clocks (when they can) ;)

Speaking of which, would it be that much extra effort to let people change
the individual regional settings (e.g. decimal separator, date format). I
can think of times when one might want to not have this specified (e.g. If I
were an American living in Germany I might always want to use a US style
date, but also a comma as a decimal separator). I'm sure there must be
better illustrations that that one mind you!
