Generally speaking I like the idea of having it in the distribution.
I've had several conversations with Marc G. Fournier about it.
The only thing I would really want to add would be a probe for
internet access using 'dig' so the cron job doesn't stick around
forever if the machine doesn't happen to have connectivity.
It would be disabled by default, of course, but we would encourage
enabling it via /etc/periodic.conf. If someone wants to bring it
in please go ahead!
