> Maintain should come up with a central cron job facility (like Drupal) that behaves like registering modules.
> An admin would not have to edit the system crontab file more than once. He would add cron.php or so to be triggered every minute.
> That script, in turn, would take care of triggering the individual modules that registered to that hook earlier. Registering would include:
> - giving the cron facility a start timestamp (like 6/9/2007, 1:30AM) and
> - a period (like 60 minutes)
> cron would then run this method relative to the timestamp in the chosen periods. That should be pretty simple to implement (some sort of modulo operation?).
> Advantage: Module writers do not have to care about explaining the use of cron to their users anymore, they can just rely on the cron structure to be there.
