I hacked one up recently ..... not well enough to commit ..... one  
possible issue could be problems with l10n of the dates output by the  
widget. It was outputting US-style dates, I was probably doing  
something wrong.

Great !
I was thinking of using a Dialog class as this would let users turn  
on cool lightbox effects etc.

Great news!

I went through all of the implementations of the Cocoon-supplied Dojo  
Widgets, trying to clean up their usage of the Widget API. So  
hopefully they provide a reasonably set of clean examples for you.

Have fun ;)
