I guess you could put it in src/misc/mtime.c or where the current time
functions are located. (make sure to add a matching VLC_EXPORT in a relevant
header file).

I think the requirements for timestamps in log files and for printing time
on top of video are much different. Basically I'd want logfile timestamps to
be compact and easily parsable while the video merged timestams should be
easily human readable, and constant width (to keep them from bouncing
about). So I think you should keep the options separated.
