How would that setting be set? Who would set it? Is that something that the 
clock app would use and allow the user to set?

If so, why not extract the time format and show that to the user? Or, at 
least, parse it to set the default of "Use 24-hour clock"? If the user wants 
to toggle 24-hour, save the new time format in the config file and use it to 
format the time next time.
