Yes. I considered that myself. There's no clear standard followed by other
ports installing periodic scripts -- some are enabled by default, others
aren't. In the end I went for having it on by default as installing it
does indicate a desire to run it. It's no big deal to switch it around

Sure. That's no problem.

Excellent. Thank you very much. I've a small cosmetic change -- it needs to
print a blank line before anything else -- and apart from the enabled by
default or not question, I need to force it to do a rules update somehow,
so that code path gets tested properly.
