Hi Jim.

Two answers:

1) I wasn't aware of fcrons atd functionality. I just perceived it as
another cron.

2) Other programs may rely on atd. I, for one, use shalvideo to schedule
recordings, and it needs atd. I figured others might need it in the
future, hence the hint.

If anyone can suggest a way for true dropin replacement of atd for
fcron, it would be interesting.

Best regards,
