No, I dont :-(. It depends what one wants. I use it mainly because we
are two supervisors for that server and when one of us changes
something, the other one should know. Since cron mails output of the
commands and since the diff (tla has no diff, it's changes --diffs, of
course) outputs the changes, it gets mailed to both of us. Which is the
most important point here.
