Thanks, Drew. I'll try address@hidden.

I can't help you directly, but you might want to pose this question to
address@hidden.

IIRC, Ed Reingold wrote the calendar stuff for Emacs (in Emacs Lisp), so it is
likely that either this has already been done for Emacs (perhaps in a later
version than the one you're using) or it will be done.  In any case, try asking
the Emacs developers about this (address@hidden).
