How about making it a fallback if xfcalender is not installed ?
The code is not big. Also, if xfcalendar is used, *I* *really* prefer
it popping up without a window border. The menu could be displayed
on right-click. But that's a personal opinion.

Oops. Seems like I am spending too much time with convenient languages,
especially Ruby :-)

In most locales, D_FMT is a terse format. Unfortunately, there is no
D_FMT_LONG or D_FMT_VERB :-(.  On glibc systems there is _DATE_FMT
that defines the format used by date(1), which could be used after
filtering out unneccersary fields like timezone and time, but that's
ugly and unportable. Looks like strftime() with _(date_format) is the 
only viable option.
