The GNU package mcron (Mellor's cron) can be a 100% compatible replacement for
Vixie cron (though the Debian package is not configured this way). It is
written in pure Guile, and allows configuration files to be written in scheme
(as well as Vixie's original format) for infinite flexibility in specifying
when jobs should be run.
