To add some argument to my previous sarcasm. I do not think that it
makes any sense to replicate cron functionality in systemd.
I do not know if it ever replace crond (I don't know Lennarts goals
here), but having actual systemd.timer functionality in system daemon
is IMHO very useful thing.
replicate half of it and then you still need to run crond for the rest
or you replicate it completely. But in that case what is the saving over
the separate daemon? I'm sorry but I do not think that crond is anything
that "optimized out" by inclusion can improve performance of Linux
desktop/server/whatever. I do not say that cronie code cannot be
improved - it definitely can - but it does not make any sense to
reimplement it from scratch.
No matter how far down the wrong road you've gone, turn back.
