I doubt that crontab is likely to return an exit status - there's nothing 
in the man page to indicate it, and it is an interactive app (mostly). 
You might get a return from the _shell_ if it failed to execute crontab 
for wahtever reason.

Wiser heads than mine may be able to offer more info; or scratch around 
in the crontab source. (I was going to say older heads, but that cuts the 
options down considerably)
