I think that this, or something similar, is in the end, the right
Ideally, I think this should be handled like the menu package.
/etc/crontab would be augmented to have something like:
# ==== BEGIN AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED SECTION -- DO NOT EDIT ==== #
# ==== END AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED SECTION -- DO NOT EDIT ==== #
Then each package would just have a file in /usr/lib/cron/auto (or
whatever) which would be used to (re)build the contents of this
section whenever a relevant package was installed.
