    Not yet. They may one day import the code from WordPress or eventually BackPress may solve the issue.

    What is it you wanted to do with cron? There’s probably a way to do it from another system with the ability to schedule tasks, especially if it’s URL based.

    I was thinking of making a plugin that would allow temporary blocking/bozo-ing/inactive-ing on a timer.

    Need more info.

    If it’s a plugin, and there’s a management page, maybe you could just hit the URL from another system that does have the ability to schedule tasks?

    I never looked into how WordPress does pseudo cron…

    If I skipped the cron thing entirely, it would only mean one extra database query per pageload, anyway, so I guess I don’t need to worry about it.

    There used to be a plugin that was hooked to someone marking an item as a favorite: that was the only time it would run. If you wanted to run it manually, you just marked something a favorite. That was a random sort of way to run it occasionally.

    I think this was the plugin:
