When I meant 'tackle', it is more of a 'come to an understanding'
thing.  Normally I would agree with you anyways, but I think what most
people would want to schedule would be stored procedures (sorry to
continually repeat myself here, but I really think this should be
critical to any scheduling proposal), not functions or ad hoc scripts.
