yacron is a modern Cron replacement that is Docker-friendly

- "Crontab" is in YAML format;
- Builtin sending of Sentry and Mail outputs when cron jobs fail;
- Flexible configuration: you decide how to determine if a cron job fails
or not;
- Designed for running in Docker, Kubernetes, or 12 factor environments:
- Runs in the foreground;
- Logs everything to stdout/stderr [1];
- Option to automatically retry failing cron jobs, with exponential backoff.

[1] Whereas vixie cron only logs to syslog, requiring a syslog daemon to be
running in the background or else you don't get logs!

Note: I am not planning any more features until the 1.0 release, but I
appreciate help finding and fixing bugs.
