That entire list represents exactly two tools: at and crontab. Allright,
three if you wanna be anal about it: anacron. At and Cron are also different
tools: at does one-time scheduling, while cron handled repeated scheduling.

Except for the very very very useful "is automagically included in backup
(and possibly replication)" that Joerg already mentioned (that was the
second thing I thought of), there is also the ability to schedule by the
second, whereas cron can only schedule by the minute, and at doesn't handle
repeating events.

Yes, I can definitely see the use in this. If you can't, then just ignore
it.
