I think that incorporating holydays including ones that are not "trivial", like easter holidays in europe that depend on the moon, is very important. When I plan an activity, I want to know if I will be working on that day! And if I have business partners in other countries, I want to know if they will be working. Again: there are already millions of calendar programs out that do the trivial: adding international holiday support is not trivial, but it is not that complicated either. I think it just sucks to have calendar programs programmed in the year 2001 that still *dont* do what is essential for a calendar. *Every* paper calendar I buy for $10 will have my national holidays, abd a bit more expensive one will give me those of neighboring countries (remember, not everybody on this earth is an US citicen)
