Maybe in separate directories off of src/.  But I don't see each of
the commands being too much code so it might not make sense to create
a separate directory for each.  What do you think?  

On related thought, do you have access directly to the CVS repository?
That way if we say, stick them in just src/ and they seem to be
growing too much we might just move them at the root to retain
history?  Man, does CVS ever suck for this sort of thing. :)

Thinking ahead as well, when we eventually work on a translator for
GNU cron, do you think that that should be under a separate module
with it's own build environment, or another directory under src/?

Probably much better if you do it by hand instead.
