Not realizing this had already been done, I started to look at this the other 
night.  Surprisingly, I came up with almost exactly the same changes as Rich, 
except I only used "/var/run/cron" instead of "/var/run/CRONFIFO".  

I also came up with a couple of issues that need to be considered with this:
1) Man page update; since man pages have been released as part of ON yet.
2) When a patch is generated to install this, it will need to make sure it 
shuts down cron, deletes the /etc/cron.d/FIFO file and then installs and 
restarts cron.  Otherwise, there will be an orphaned named pipe lying around 
the /etc filesystem.
