No, we would have to put some cron if we want this.
But is it really useful?
If a basesystem change, the chroot gets rebuilt automatically already.
If no basesystem change, the rebuilt chroot will be the same, and does
not have to be rebuilt ("just in case" is usually the wrong way to do

It would have helped if triggered every hour, which does not seem
reasonable (I guess it was every 7 days at Mandriva).

Anyway, my iurt fix helps not to encounter this issue anymore, with no
