I have once written a cron for an older version of Cygwin and
only for NT but it should still run. I haven't looked at it for
two years but it might be useful anyway.
The problem with cron is the problem of all applications which
want to change the user context in NT. They need the password.
That cron solves the problem by maintaining a DES encrypted copy
of the passwords.
