Does our crontab allow the use of "L" (as found on 
in the day-of-month field which would allow for a job to run on a 31th or feb 

It would be useful for certain apps like /www/awstats to update their database 
on the last hour of the month since putting the cron job on the 1st of the 
month makes the software update in a new month and putting it on the 30th of 
the month might loose 1 day.
