at has been giving me some grief[1], and I find myself wondering why I 
fight it. For what I'm trying to accomplish, anyway, at has some serious 
design flaws anyway.

I think it would be easy to write a little daemon that schedules jobs 
and executes them at precisely the requested time (instead of relying on 
cron jobs like at). But I oughtn't reinvent the wheel. Is there an at 
killer out there already?

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the
right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
