Changing Date Format from DD/MM/YYYY to YYYY-MM-DD in Vim

Recently I had the occasion to reformat a load of dates in Vim from DD/MM/YYYY to YYYY-MM-DD. In Vim, this is quite simple:

:%s/\(\d\{2}\)\/\(\d\{2}\)\/\(\d\{4}\)/\3-\2-\1/g

This should be easy to adapt to reformatting other date formats.
