Request for hover callback for datepicker

A date hover callback for the datepicker would be very useful, allowing developers to present per-date context and thus allowing end users to select a date based on the contextualized information.

This approach is in contrast to asking the user to select a date and then presenting information that may cause the user to select a different date.

Some examples of how this might be useful:

  • ticket office showing seat availability for an event
  • an airline showing varying prices on different days

Should be straightforward enough to add hooks to the bindHover section of the code.

Anything based solely on hover will be bad for accessibility. Hovering a date for complex data being displayed in some other portion of the page doesn't seem ideal anyway. See for a good example of displaying prices on different days. Considering this has been open for six years and nobody else has commented on here saying that they'd like this functionality, I'm not inclined to add this.
