It looks like bcron messes with the permissions and structures of
/var/spool/cron/crontabs. Are you going to handling conversion between
the two (cron and bcron)? In particular, are you going to convert
*back* on removal of bcron-run? Or do you expect cron to clean it up on
re-install? (I can handle that, but I'd like to know the plan.)
