Suppose you have a Date input field, and someone first enters a date in
that field in a format not recognized by Roundup, then uses the calendar
widget (_generic.calendar.html) to edit the date.

This uses html_calendar, which does

    curr_date = date.Date(date_str) # to highlight

which produces a Templating Error email to the admin with a backtrace
when it cannot parse the date.

Whatever is done with a badly formatted date - a message to the user
about valid date formats would seem sensible - giving a Templating Error
like that isn't user-friendly or the right thing to do.
