Cron to be deprecated in favor of Upstart in Ubuntu

Ubuntu's Upstart is an init daemon replacement, quite analagous to OS X's launchd. Launchd also replaced cron on OS X - and upstart plans to replace cron on Ubuntu. No telling when, but all my cron jobs will need to be reformatted.

Update: Sept 2011. Three years later and still waiting...
