appt improvement

I use appt. I find that a global time delay for each appointments is
inconvenient. For example I need to be warned an hour before an appointment
downtown and only 5 minutes for a meeting at work. The following patch
keeps track of a delay for each appointment. It should be backward
compatible with the old appt.
