Not sure how much I like this.  It's a bit cluttered, and the
start/end dates don't line up in columns (partly because of the date
format).

Which brings me to, the fixed date format (d. MMM yyyy) is not a very
natural one to everybody.  I'd rather have the date format either
taken from the locale or be user-specified, perhaps from a menu.  This
wouldn't be too difficult for display purposes, but the hard-coded
regexp for parsing dates presents problems.

Also curious why it's done with a regexp rather than
QDateTime::fromString, if anybody knows.

Yep.  It's hard to measure exactly, but I'd say it's maybe 3-4x
improved.
