Does anyone know if there's a way to make cron log failed return codes 
from scripts?  For example on solaris, /var/cron/log will contain 
entries such as:

   <  root 12978 c Fri Nov  4 02:01:00 2005 rc=1

Indicating that this script returned 1 instead of 0. All of the distros 
I'm using appear to use vixie cron, I would guess this is the standard 
across the board.
