Cron vs. Whenjobs vs. Goaljobs

I'm interested in a replacement for cron which would allow me to run
various cron jobs on demand, and mark them as having been run, so they
won't be run again from the schedule.  Looking through the Fedora
repository, I noticed whenjobs, which looks like it may do the job (no
pun intended).  The documentation for whenjobs says that it is obsolete
and has been replaced by goaljobs.

Has anyone tried out whenjobs or goaljobs.  Any problems?  Will they do
what I need done?

Thanks - jon
