When you say complex, are you talking about the possible ways to
define when your job runs ? You could use a parser for the time format
it uses, like this:
http://umit.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/umit/branch/ggpolo/umitCore/CronParser.py?revision=1175&view=markup

I believe using this parser or some other would cut all the
difficulty, then it is all about creating a gui/cli/etc based on it or
extend it.. it is up to you =)
