"Bah, how hard can that be?" - famous last words, now eaten (I did choke
on them along the way) ...

Here's my attempt (tested *very* lightly):

&%%(let ((lastday (calendar-last-day-of-month (calendar-extract-month date)
                                              (calendar-extract-year date)))
         (day (calendar-extract-day date)))
        (= day lastday))         last day of month
