athena-auto-update should use start-stop-daemon

It's been noted athena-auto-update should use start-stop-daemon, which avoids the at(1) suckage, avoids frequent cron jobs, and avoids the ConsoleKit? issues with sleeping inside cron jobs.

It was noted on the zephyr that we have no idea how start-stop-daemon will behave when the machine is suspend. Because this is a huge re-architecting of auto-update, extensive testing (above and beyond normal test plans) should be conducted.

The idea of double-forking was also mentioned.
