David, please be certain that this does not mess up anachron, and that it obeys /etc/cron.daily/ etc.

Why? Because quite simply despite mcron being intended to do things differently from dixie cron, it still needs to be compatible or users that install it may have problems with certain important tasks that assume /etc/cron.daily/ works not running.
