Hi Bernt,

This function is now part of org-mode and is named `org-agenda-to-appt'.
It is safer to use the version shipped with Org than the one on the web.

Yes, I've fixed this.  This should also handle the case where people
still use diary appointments.

I've also fixed this.

Maybe we should consider having `org-agenda-to-appt-activate' doing a
similar job than `appt-activate': check for new appts (in agendas) at 
a specific time and when agenda files are saved. 

In the meantime, you can do this manually with a cron job or
`run-at-time' (See C-h f run-at-time RET) 

Hope this helps...
