       raw
           Take whatever the user has given instead of time and date fields. If given, all other
           time and date fields are ignored. Can for example be used to specify cron EXTENSIONS
           like reboot, yearly etc. See crontab(5) for the extensions if any that your cron
           implementation implements.

       raw_command
           Take whatever the user has given in the command and ignore everything else. If given,
           the command will be added to crontab. Can for example be used to define variables like
           SHELL or MAILTO.

EXAMPLES

           # run Monday to Saturday at 23:15
           __cron some-id --user root --command "/path/to/script" \
              --hour 23 --minute 15 --day_of_week 1-6

           # run on reboot
           __cron some-id --user root --command "/path/to/script" \
              --raw @reboot

           # remove cronjob
           __cron some-id --user root --command "/path/to/script" --state absent

           # define default shell
