As I understand it, there is not yet a cron or the moral equivalent.
It's not a simple port, as you have to be able to wake the phone from
suspend, etc.

I'm hoping that someone who understands the low-level issues will
decide to dive into this, because I have a number of ideas that
require something like cron.  Perhaps this will be part of FSO?  Arne
brought it up on the list about six weeks ago, and there was no real
answer then.
