So run a script every 15 minutes that checks if it's running and
restarts it if not. If the service is important, you want that anyway;
if not, then you don't need @reboot.
I don't argue that @reboot can't be convenient, only that it's trivial
to work around.
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
world. -- seen on the net
