Version 1.4.7-5 features several packaging improvements:
- use anacron for daily/weekly/monthly jobs
- use run-parts rather than ad-hoc script
- use vanilla configuration files

Downside: after upgrading from 1.4.7-4, you will need to restart crond.
(The configuration must be reloaded so that run-parts is used.)

Please test and signoff.
