I was in #drupal couple days ago chatting with dww and rDoughlass about
dbbackup and dba.
The the discussion drifted to this point:
Why not introduce a module that will allow both modules and users to add
scheduled tasks to Drupal.
I mean, instead of every module adding its own logic to maintain a task
over a specific period/schedule, why not introduct module developer with a
new hook that will provide an array of scheduled functions to run. And
will also allow users to call some urls/function calls on scheduled basis.
This won't replace or rewrite the functionality provided by Actions and
Workflow module or even do what schedule module does.
It's a re-designed scheduler module that may replace cron.
What do you all think?
