I'm not so sure about "good", but I built a small cron I found on the 
Web. Seems to run OK, but it uses sleep() to schedule wakeups. It would 
probably be better to rewrite it to use the alarmd that is already 
running. cron expects to send stdout/stderr via mail, which doesn't exist 
either, so I modified nbsmtp-1.00 to emulate binmail.
