Currently wall output includes date in short format: HH:MM TZ
It can be useful to have date included. Some utils use wall(1) for reporting events and it would be easier to see date of them at one glance.
Fix: Sample patch against 8.3 source attached. Very likely it has to be improved by real developer.
