hc-cron is able to work transaparenly both if the box is powered on,
twenty four hours a day or boxes who are powered off at night.

I have tested it and it seems to work.  But cron is a somewhat
dangerous utilisty because bugs in it can translate in sezcurity

There is no time to hack the distrib for handling conflicting

So we have two optiions:

-Let hc-cron where it is (in the additionals directory) and let the
 home users to install it by hand (rpm -U hc-cron) after finishing the
 installation of the distrib

-Put hc-cron in the distrib and vixie-cron (the classic one) in
additionals and warn people with boxes powered up 24 hours a day that
they would be well advised after install to remove hc-cron and install
the better tested vixie-cron.
