Right, but from an admin perspective, I'm not so interested in the
tabs - except when backing up. In fact, I think they're in the
wrong place - they ought to be in ~/crontab (or something similar).

Now let's take a system with several thousands users with NFS mounted
home directories. Do you seriously suggest that crond must scan all
of them every minute to find out whether ~/crontab changed?

Exactly.. Not me. Certainly not when we have such beautiful tools
available like saltstack.

Okay, you got me curious - what does saltstack have to do with user
crontabs ?
Allows you to have one single timer of cronjob in one place to take care of a
whole bunch of machines etc. etc. My private setup triggers a pkg.upgrade on
all minions f.e. So no cron jobs per machine/user, just one job handled by
salt. A timer could easily have this done over night,. The example may not be
the perfect one, but there's lots more salt can handle from one central point.
