The UTC dates are confusing. We should use the fuzzy date from util.py instead to make things clear.

Additionally it might be a good idea to change the timeago function to use a port of the code from "Smart Timeago" as found here: http://pragmaticly.github.com/smart-time-ago/.

Fixed with XonStat commit 71c8d6efdc344d0fc9b83d834f02f31ef6293916.

Use "fuzzy" dates everywhere (e.g. "an hour ago"), but allow for
a hover showing the absolute UTC time when needed. This is done
with a span and a title attribute.
