It's not on our immediate list. Recurring payments are tricky:
1) wallet needs to be online (and have sufficient balance)
2) recurring payments are inherently linkable, and thus can void
   your anonymity

So setting up such payments would have to come with some big disclaimers
for the user ("they can fail if you are offline", "they fail if you do
not have enough coins in your wallet and ignore warnings", "they may
allow someone to identify you as the person making the payment by
observation over time").
