No, but from the calendar, I can use 'd' (diary-view-entries) to show
the fancy diary with the BBDB anniversaries.  So, the only piece
missing, from my perspective, is a way to mark the calendar for the days
with a BBDB anniversary.  A function for one of the calendar display
hooks might do the trick.
