[Letsencrypt-devel] Bug#832066: certbot installs an unexpected cronjob

I'd like to +1 this feature request. I have spent ages tearing my hair
out, trying to work out why I kept hitting a domain limit, even though
I hadn't run certbot.

The problem (amongst others) is that (according to the Letsencrypt
documentation) new certificates must be requested before renewals to
prevent the limit for a domain being reached, but I never get the
chance as the cron job runs so frequently. The only way I can see to
disable it is to edit it, but that will break the package installation.
