I thought we decided on fcron with the small adjustment/script needed to 
support /etc/cron.d in the last round of discussion about this.  bcron 
was also popular (+1 from me...) but then we need an anacron replacement 
too (i.e. fcron).

Aaron has repeatedly called for someone to deal with this and we have 
had a total of zero volunteers to do so...  So if you are going to do 
this then it would be great. (also have a look at mailman in svn trunk 
if you have time :P )
