I have a working one.
I called it CocoonPipelineCronJob, it is configured from cocoon.xconf 
with one parameter <pipeline>, this is then called as a 'cocoon://' 
If the logging level is set to 'info' for 'cron', the output of the 
pipeline is written to the cron log.

I use it for sending emails, but it could be used for other stuff like 
updating indexes etc.

I suppose it could be generalised by allowing it to access any source, 
not just cocoon:// pipelines.

It could be embellished by adding an option to allow it to output the 
called pipeline to a WriteableSource.

I have not.
