That reminds me,

I assume you want to use Timer entry to do checkpoint every N seconds.
Question is, how are you going to put Timer entry in the first place. If
you want to hardcode it, don't!

What about creating startup resource property for Jigsaw that would be
called every time Jigsaw is started. It is easy to write something
simulating .profile file or Startup folder on Mac and PC as a container
resource. That would allow to start timer based events and maybe some other
things like agents frameworks. There would be a need for shut down event
too, of course.

Comments?

Ps. If you are doing it in other way, can you explain how?
