The last thing I want is some cron job checking for updates. I would be nice
if it could be kick-started from an admin page similar to the database
backup. Is wp-cron another plugin? If so, I would advise against relying on
another plugin to do something you can do yourself in a different way that
makes more sense to the end user.
