But that still doesn't address The Wanderer's point. For example, on
one of my machines, a cron job pops up every minute, day and night, to
see whether to record music off the radio.

It just seems sensible to me to use "single" for what it's for, rather
than try to fly-swat a number of corner cases (to mix metaphors).
(Particularly if others, like gene, might archive this method.)
