I wouldn't want to add a crontab entry per default, just as there is
none for the current bsdmainutils.  The administrator or each user
needs to decide on their own if and how to use calendar in connection
with crontab.

Since I maintain both documents, I already tried.  If you can tell me
the date on which Bruce took over leadership from Ian Murdock, I'd be
glad to add.  My own investigation didn't reveal a particular date
other than "sometimes in April 1996".
