Although I am likely to agree with you on this, any interactions with
Emacs's diary requires working with it.  

This reminds me of a problem with the insert anniversary function in the
default agenda view ("i a").  This function ignores the
calendar-date-style and inserts dates in the american style, which of
course means that diary entries are quietly ignored if you have
calendar-date-style set to anything other than 'american...

Not a big deal...  I don't use anniversaries *that* often!
