[wp-hackers] Cron and long running processes

Hi all,
I'm wondering if WP's built in "cron" feature is suitable for long
running processes? It's clear it takes a page hit to kick off the cron
process, but what's not clear (to me) is whether the visitor is forced
to sit there waiting until the cron job finishes.
