Hello Tassilo,

First, I took a look at the lines

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(org-agenda-to-appt t)
(appt-activate 1)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This is already a good starting point, just 3 remarks:
- I think, I'll need a filter for org-agenda-to-appt, because I only
  want TODO items. Should be no problem.
- How to distinguish between SCHEDULED and DEADLINE?  I'll
- Perhaps the main problem: appt does not know about warning periods.
  There are items with "-3d", other with "-5M"[1]. There is only one
  universal appt-message-warning-time. Would it be possible, to have a
  individual warning-time for each todo-item, directly computed from the
  warning time in the org-timestamp?

In the meantime, I'll take a look at your th-appt-alarm.
Thanks for your code!


[1]  That means "warn 5 minutes before". I don't know, if org-mode
supports this. "-2H" for hours would be useful too.
