use fcron as default scheduler in Fedora?



Hello,

I think that fcron should be the default scheduler in fedora.
fcron, with the service fcron_watch_config activated should now be 
100% compatible with vixie-cron (cronie). The fcron_watch_config stuff 
is a bit convoluted (3 scripts and one C program...) but should work.

The advantages over cronie are the following:
* it also does what anacron does
* it has more features
* instead of waking up every minutes to look at config files, like
  cronie do, it uses inotify to watch the config. This should lead to
  less awaking and certainly be interesting for power saving in some
  situations

I won't push this more, somebody else has to volunteer to make this 
happen. I think it could be done in F11 and it should be a feature.
