Indeed it is, or to any format not already handled.

There are some requests in the bug DB for other formats:
https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4636
https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=19601

Most interesting is Comment #4 in bz# from Monte:
https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=19601#c4

Apparently he submitted a pull request last year for what seems like a 
very nice solution, using formatting strings:
https://github.com/livecode/livecode/pull/5433

This was per this BZ request:
https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=18150

Not sure what happened to that.  Seems like it would be a great option.
