 Erm, you guys are erm, bananas for tangling cron with AJAX.

 Take my (Mom's) blog,
 http://abj.jidanni.org/articles/ ,
 not a speck of !JavaScript or even CSS!

 So it's not only "how many of my users have !JavaScript turned off" but
 also "how many of my designers too!"

 Anyway if I were in charge, I would have the cron be external, using
 the Unix crontab(1) command... at least it would save a check at each
 browse... (though "no browse, no cron" I admit is neat.)

 Also see #8927 cron comments.
