Can you tell us a little about your product? Where does it fall on the scale
from "Simple" to "Cron"?

I'm actually adding what you might call "Stupid Rescheduler" to the base
Xron product. A "periodDays" (type float) attribute that specifies the
reschedule interval in days and fractions thereof. Zero means "OneTime".
It's not much, but at least you'll be able to do some useful rescheduling
"out of the box", i.e. without subclassing.
