I like to have Emacs remind me of upcoming appointments.  For this, I
have put "(appt-activate 1)" in my init file and it works automagically
for anything that is (or will be) into the Diary.

Now, I'm also using Org agenda.  For instance, I use 'org-capture' to
enter some new appointment.  The Info manual says that I should call
'org-agenda-to-appt' to add Org agenda appointments and also have
notifications about those.  The problem is that I could forget to make
this call after entering a new appointment.

Inspired by what is done in 'appt-active', I came up with the following
solution in my init file:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun +org-agenda-update-appt ()
  (when (member buffer-file-name (org-agenda-files))
(add-hook 'write-file-functions #'+org-agenda-update-appt)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

So my question is: Is there a better/cleaner interface to do this?
Because what I have done seems bit tricky from a user point of view.
