I think it would be worthwhile to enable support for ISO 8601 in
calendar/diary by default. See http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/iso-time.html
for a detailed description. Ideally, one could give e.g. 
"2002-09-04T16:55:00" as a date/time spec.

Of course, I don't volunteer to change the code, so I'll shut up now :)

Cheers,
  Colin
