Indeed! If the current system works, why change it?

It works until you get a runaway job. which cron is unable to
track..even if you stop the cron daemon..it wont stop the processes
it forked.

That's exactly like wanted. cron's purpos is to _start_ jobs but not
stop them.

Why on earth should it kill my programs just because crond is stopped or
restarted? It would be as stupid as a shell always killing all childs
on exit. Processes may get SIGHUP and do whatever they want with it.
