Hi Robby,
It seems that we cannot schedule tasks every 30 seconds or 5 minutes. Am I wrong ?

What's wrong with crone? Seems to fit the bill, except for tasks run at very
large intervals. I guess the other thing missing from crone is scheduling
against UTC instead of local time. Otherwise it's pretty trivial to mould to
your needs.

If you need scheduling on a yearly basis, you should be able to take the
crone code and put a wrapper with coarse granularity around it very easily.
