In messages like http://www.mail-archive.com/zope3-...@zope.org/msg05964.html,
zc.async is mentioned as the solution for cron-like functionality in zope.
Effectively you would not need zope2's clockserver.
Reading zc.async's docs, I cannot find how to do a given task regularly. For
example a weekly pack. Or a daily call of one method that archives older
items. That sort of stuff. Many things can be handled by cronjobs, but you
tend to get a lot of them. And you don't want to embed the password
Anyway: I cannot find the word "cron" anywhere in the zc.async source. Or
"repetitive" or "regular". Is zc.async not intended for this kind of usage?
