It is, and it does.

There are other cron files look in /etc/cron.hourly/koha-common and
/etc/cron.daily/koha-common .

Check that they arent in any of the existing ones, then make a new file
if not. Id suggest /etc/cron.d/local-koha or similair. Otherwise when
you upgrade the packages you will have to resolve your edited version
with the one in the package. If this is a job that should be run by
default, then sending a patch to add it to the cron jobs in the packages
would be most welcome.
