What do you mean when you say there is no overlap?  For example, I have
module_mneisa_purge and module_data_summary.  I need to run
module_mnesia_purge on every week/day on an interval.  In addition, I need
to run module_data_summary on every 24hrs.  Does this mean I can't run two
instance of gen_cron with two different modules?  Sooner or latter, both
gen_cron instances will fall on exact time-slot.

I know this won't be my last question on gen_cron ;)
