No problem and already dropped.

Removed a "In short,"

Of course you are correct, but where to put is else :-) I could put in
the "Applications/Internet" group but I think that it would be better in
one of the "System Environment" groups. As it is neither Base, Kernel,
Libraries nor Shells I thought the best would be the Daemons group. But
if you have a better idea... Just say it.

Haven't really thought about this but to make it configurable I marked the
cron entry file %config(noreplace).
Can I read a config file from sysconfig easily in a cron script like I
can read it in a startup script or would it require to call a script
from the crontab which reads the config and starts vnstat?
