Dunno, I think that cron_diagnose is probably a bit overly-specialised to be
run along with every single cygcheck, and in the more general case, if lots of
packages register check-callbacks with cygcheck, we're going to end up
(implicitly) making it dependent on a whole lot of other stuff being there and
Perhaps if we added it under some kind of --run-extra-tests flag that was
off by default?
Hey, I had another idea. It should definitely scan /etc/postinstall and
report any scripts that failed to complete (i.e. don't end with '.done').
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
