FWIW, reading the commentary section of planner.el by John Wigley, I
think that this package provides some means to do this. AFAICU you
need a external tool called "remind" and it works together with
calendar and diary.

But I have not installed and tried it myself. (I always wanted to do
it, though ... I think, I need a program that reminds me of such tasks
...)
