Reflector wish list

I don't know if this is the right place for this but here goes.

I am going to be running the reflector software on a Sun workstation
(perhaps multiple Suns linked via the UNICAST option), but I cannot have
them running during working hours. I can start them when I want using the
CRON command, but I would like an automatic way for them to shut themselves
down.

Ideally the reflector task could stay running all the time, and only allow
connections during configurable days-of-week/time-of-day etc. . And this
would be in keeping with the recent 'Internet friendly' enhancements <grin>
.

Well reflector developers, what do you think? :)
