bcron: a new cron system designed with secure operations in mind1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

This is bcron, a new cron system designed with secure operations in mind. To do this, the system is divided into several seperate programs, each responsible for a seperate task, with strictly controlled communications between them. The user interface is a drop-in replacement for similar systems (such as vixie-cron), but the internals differ greatly.
