In setting up a non-user specific cron-type job, I felt the natural home would be /System/Library/LaunchAgents. ie get it run an startup, not at login time. However, a search of various online docs on this all seem to repeat the same error, namely referring to / System/Library/LaunchAgents as for per-user agents. eg:
~/Library/LaunchAgents Per-user agents provided by the user.
/Library/LaunchAgents Per-user agents provided by the administrator.
/Library/LaunchDaemons System wide daemons provided by the administrator.
/System/Library/LaunchAgents Mac OS X Per-user agents.
/System/Library/LaunchDaemons Mac OS X System wide daemons.
A quick check of /etc/rc shows /System/Library/LaunchAgents is never loaded and rather than edit /etc/rc I've ended up sticking my plists in /System/Library/LaunchDaemons which is kinda nasty..
