It is a "must have", to accommodate us home users that do not run our
machines 24*7. The alternative was to use anacron instead of cron, and I
think some distros do it that way.

And then there's /etc/sysconfig/cron ...

You can configure it so that it logs as each run-cron job is started, so
you know which one has problems, or not.

## Type: yesno
## Default: no
# generate syslog message for all scripts in
# cron.{hourly,daily,weekly,monthly}
# even if they haven't returned an error? (yes/no)

IMO, the default should be "yes".

As far as I can see from the way /usr/lib/cron/run-crons
loops over /etc/cron.daily/* at whenever time "daily" is set to run, it
is by the shell sort order and it includes everything there.

Yes. But you can choose the time it normally runs.
