Yes, the left-out days provide visual relief. However, probably some other  
sort of visual break -- for instance at the month boundaries -- would work  
as well. Either a space, or a month title. Something to keep the eye from  
sliding right past date changes.

I looked at the various agenda-view options, but didn't see any "month"  
setting other than to set how many days show up. By month I don't mean a  
full-blown grid calendar (though that would be nice!) but the weekly  
format with spacers (note or space) whenever the month changed.

And of course, being able to review the whole year from the start. But I  
understand I could achieve that with a customized view.

Thanks!
Mark
