Appreciate the help...

 I received some interesting answers to my cron question.  Most people said 
it was not possible.  One person reviewed cron's source code and said the 
source would need to be modified.  One person said I should mount the 
filesystem with noexec.   I'll review and test the answers as best I can. 

To answer several people's curiosities of why I keep pushing - when I'm 
tasked with a quest, I try to tap all my resources, including this list, 
to find a solution.  One never knows when an answer might be obvious, or 
perplexing, as this question seems to have been.   To some, an answer is 
obvious.  To others, it is perplexing.   It all depends on each person's 
level of knowledge.   The more one learns, the more things can become more 
obvious.  Thus, we grow. 

In the end, like now, I try to provide my findings, and, if valid, may be 
of benefit to others. 

I try not to wear out the list, but do what the list was created for - 
discussion and inquiry of UNIX and related topics.   This question proved 
to test people's knowledge, and I did get some good feedback. 

Thanks to all, and until the next adventure...
