I just felt something was wrong, or gnomecal was really bending the specs.

I don't know. I understand the above as, the calendar object having a
marker saying that all fields are date related and not time. That looks
fine for all-day/notime events, but the problem is also related
timespecific events.

I think the current patch, except for being not-pretty is the most correct
way. If you choose an event to end on 24/12, it ends when 25/12 begins.

Now that would be a good thing. Another gui thing that would be cool, was
to have the minical and todo (and the daily-reminder when there) present
in all four views. Eg. in year view, clicking a day would pop up the
appropriate todos etc, and you could change year.

In general, there are quite a few annoyances in gnomecal's yearview, or
mayby I'm just being illogical.
