You are right -- I would vote for NOT having pages show up in the
dynamic calendar ... because I think pages leave the realm of "date of
post/event" territory.  That's my thought.

I am using wordpress 2.7dev -- if I change a page from "published" to
"unpublished" it goes from being on the calendar as a blue link to no
longer being on the calendar.  So I don't see any unpublished pages on
my calendar using the 3.1 branch from the svn -- maybe that was fixed
already?  Or maybe "unpublished" is different than "draft" ?  Rick -
did you try the soon-to-be 3.1.2 branch?

I just noticed that too -- would need to filter out the "future event"
category from the calendar when "show all posts" is selected ...
that's a second, different, issue I think though.  But I think worth
working on.
