[wp-hackers] Customising date based URLs to use a 2 digit year

Hi all,

I have been a bit stumped by this and can't find a solution anywhere -
a potential client wants to move from Moveable Type to Wordpress. His
MT urls are in the format http://site.com/YY/MM/DD and he posts one
post per day (always!).

Does anyone know if there a way for Wordpress to
a) use a 2 digit year instead of 4 and
b) get wordpress to pick up the post for that date on the single day
URL instead of showing the single day archive (My thoughts are to
write a custom template for the daily archive and change the query to
pick up the 1 post for that day)?
c) remove the normal wordpress URL for the individual posts? My
initial thoughts are to filter the permalinks to point to the date of
the post.
