        As a user I want an easy, well laid out GUI that I can quickly
modify the following (which I think we are already close to):

        o  Add, modify, delete cron and at jobs (of course)
        o  Use a 3 step wizard/druid to quickly create cron/at jobs (see
                Juliens earlier post on exacts specs)
        o  Offer pluggins (I am so lost on how to spell this now) to
                and modify the task the user will be using.
        o  Allow "easy" scheduling, or predefined schedules for users
                Daily at x time, or Weekly on x days at x time...
        o  Add an Advanced Tab/Button/Dialog that allows a user to
                a much more precise schedule.
        o  A Preferences dialog to set cron variables.  ???
        o  An option to show/hide old at commands

Any others that I am missing?
