And my 2 cents:

Not being the maintainer either, but sometimes a user, I'm for it.
However, I feel that cal-tex requires a general overhaul.  The LaTeX
file it produces doesn't look really great (neither the source nor the
output).  And it doesn't fit on A4.

I could try to do that overhaul.  For starters, enable A4 calendars;
also, why not use TikZ to draw the boxes (at least as an option)?  WDYT?
