comment Why is SystemDialogInput failing to return a save file path?
@Mike please don't delete. Aside from the fact that it will bump the question #2000, this is the sort of thing other people might encounter. It might be a "rookie mistake" but there are plenty of rookies out there, especially around the interactive interface capabilities in Mathematica.

comment How can I extend BinCounts to work on Times and Dates?
I haven't got time to test this out now but indeed GatherBy is not enough on its own. But something like {First[#],Last[#]}& @@@ GatherBy[data,datespec] might work.

comment HoldFirst and inserting additional options into a Grid of Graphics
It isn't. Heike's version just was easier to integrate into the rather more complex actual code that I have, so I upvoted all good answers and accepted Heike's as the best one for my needs.

GatherBy might be what you need.

comment HoldFirst and inserting additional options into a Grid of Graphics
@Rojo - right, that's the one I meant, but it seems to be necessary for things to work. I had already tried the putting Hold and HoldForm in the same place. Odd that HoldFirst in the function definition isn't sufficient once the Map comes into play. That was the thing I'd missed. The second level spec for Cases was just something that hadn't dawned on me when I posted the Q (at 11pm my time) - wrapping in Hold means the arguments of the plot are at second level. I now have a solution to this question that doesn't need Inset.

comment HoldFirst and inserting additional options into a Grid of Graphics
@Rojo you have appended this comment to Heike's answer, where there is an Unevaluated. Your answer also has Unevaluateds in there still. It does seem important. I've accepted Heike's answer because it was the clearest and minimal adjustment to my own code, which now works (hooray!).

comment HoldFirst and inserting additional options into a Grid of Graphics
The other crucial difference from my code seems to be Cases[mheld[[i, j]], _Rule, {2}] with the level specification. Not entirely clear to me why that is needed - something to do with getting underneath the Unevaluated?

I'd tried Hold - isn't it the Unevaluated that does the job?

Does this handle leap years? The division by 365 in DateConv makes me wonder.
