How come Dragonfly uses vixiecron instead of Dillon Cron? :-) (I always remembered
you as "that cron guy" before this, the cron that does cron and ONLY cron.)
This question came up some time ago and the answer Matt gave then was:
    There are a bunch of things that vixie cron does that dcron does
    not, like deal with environment variables and execute-on-startup
    directives in the crontab and TZ overrides.  If someone wants to
    work on those items, and whatever else is missing, then I wouldn't
    mine replacing it.  But I don't have time to work on it myself.
