[arch-general] Replace dcron once again?

It doesn't seem like dcron is maintained very well [1], so I think we
should consider switching. FS#18681 [2] is quite a critical bug in a
crond when everyone expects jobs to run only once.

I'd like to go with fcron because it seems to work very well for most
people, has a lot of features while having a small dependency tree.

Comments welcome.
