The only downside is that I usually get an e-mail locally that contains some text like "iTunes, iTunes, iTunes, iTunes," or a status message, when the script gets run. I don't know how to suppress that output without just adding > /dev/null to the command in crontab.
Just add the following to the head of your crontab file:
        SHELL=/bin/sh
        MAILTO=""
Checkout the manual from the command line for other environment variables:
        % man 5 crontab

Man, I KNEW that when I switched to Mac I'd learn all sorts of cool Unix tricks that would help me on my linux boxes, and it's been exactly that. :) There's just not enough time to find all these little things out on your own, you know?
