Keep in mind that right now GnuCash only allows one application to
modify your data file.  This means that to run a cron job you have to
make sure you don't already have gnucash running on that data file.

Having said that, we ARE still talking about the same thing --
although right now there's definitely not a good way to automate the
printing and/or emailing the invoices.  And even once Neil finishes
his importer work it's unclear if you'll be able to perform the tasks
you want unattended.

Although I suppose it's all just a SMoP, if you've got the energy. :)
