We talked about this earlier, I think it was before the list.  But our
plan is to make it as user friendly as possible.  That would be ok for
an advanced tab/button, but we are going to try and build some
pre-defined schedules that they can choose from when they edit a task,
        o Daily at x time
        o Weekly on x days at x time
        o Daily, Recurring every x Minutes/hours
        o Weekly on x days, Recurring every x Minutes/hours

That way they can quickly choose the options they want without a being
presented a huge list of options all at once.  Then we could have an
advanced tab that gave all the options available.  I'm still not crazy
about all those toggle buttons, it just seems really cluttered, but that
may be the only way to do it.
