Note that if GCGraceSeconds is 10 days, you want to run repair often
enough that there will never be a moment where there is more than
exactly 10 days since the last successfully completed repair

When scheduling repairs, factor in things like - what happens if
repair fails? Who gets alerted and how, and will there be time to fix
the problem? How long does repair take?

So basically, leave significant margin.
