Done.  I tried to use the cvs import command, but for cal that failed because
it had been in cvs before.  BTW I didn't put into cvs, since
it's a slsh script, so it wouldn't fit in a jed scripts package.

Do the upstream authors want these included?  At least po-mode seems rather
specialized to me.
Apropos po_mode: in the script I see
% Set the revision date. It should insert time strings in the format of
% e.g. "2004-06-28 20:11-0400" where the last part is the users time zone. 
% The use of the date command to get the time zone is perhaps a little
% ugly, but I cannot figure out how to get the right time zone at all times
% across all time zones with S-Lang's built-in time functions. Maybe you can
% help?

Morten, have you tried to use strftime("%Y-%m-%d %R%z") ?  Maybe this could
also be used for the Debian changelog trailer lines.
