Mail on Calendar Event

I think the CalendarPlugin is great, but I would love to see some extension or new plugin that hooked together the calendar with mailnotify, so that when a particular day occurred, that person would get emailed. So for example we have build calls every day, and a different person is scheduled to listen to the call every day. We would like the calendar (or something) to send an email to that person when that day occurs. This seems to be something relatively common which would be of good widespread use.

Currently I am working on this problem. I have added a patch to calender plugin, that will take Name, email-id, no. of days before which reminder should be send from user alongwith the events. Now I am adding these entries to the database. I am usoing mysql as database. Then I have written a cron job, that will be invoked at 12 pm in night evryday. This job will check todays date with reminder dates of the events. And will send mail to all the users who have reminder date same as today, reminding them of the event.
