against a known standard point in time. The alternate constructor uses the time that this object is created,

DateFormatter is used to
format some dates according to the server's formats and the user's time zone. As such, you will need a new
instance of this class for each user and "current time", typically one per request.
Returns the i18n message to format the given date relative to the "now" time passed to the constructor.
