Hi :)

No, that feature is not present. I'm not really sure
if it could be implemented inside cycle (which is
quite a gui-oriented program), but maybe another tiny
python script (without wx) could be added to handle

I have some concerns about the fact that, as user data
is protected by password, to add it to cron you might
need to add some switch with the password in it, which
I don't really like.

I can forward your idea upstream, or think more deeply
about it, but I cannot find an elegant solution right
now. Any ideas?
