+1 for the idea to have it a pseudo-cron.

SOund quite similar a Them i'm working on, with for example space in
Admin Panle to insert the plugins tags and let them shw up without
need to edit core file of the theme, random images in header, bloglogo
fi present, author pict and bio, show calendar or not, programmable
menu and some other stuff. Acytualliy I used Ozh's Theme Toolkit but
planning to switch to self made controla panel for localization
