AFAICS /usr/local/etc/periodic is mainly used by ports, e.g. portaudit
uses it to fetch its database every day.

For your own system wide cron jobs, you could also use user cron tabs,
e.g. root, nobody, ... depending on what you want to do.

I think it's only a matter of taste.

Don't mention it -- the only thing I did was pasting my script :-)
