I'm not sure. I was thinking about running xfcalendar from the clock.
That would give you additional appointments.
What do other people think about this?

Excellent. I did already make the panel use strftime in CVS, but your
patch is much more thorough, since I forgot the conversion to utf8 ;-)
Btw, the utf8date string must be freed afterwards.
However, I don't like the date represented in the numeric format, so I
guess the only way to do this is let translators change the format
string. I believe xffm does this as well. Are there any other options?
Thanks for the patches,
