Add an option to reschedule a periodic agent by formula. The properties box of an agent would need a small input box to add a formula. The formula is being computed after the agent has run. If the formula returns a datetime value, that datetime is being used as next schedule time. If the formula returns a number, this number is being used as @adjust(@now;0;0;0;0;minutes;0) to determine the next schedule.
That way probably ANY scheduling scheme could be possible like tri-weekly, every 10th day, the next birthday according to calendar, etc.
I am not sure wheter this was the idea behind that post:

As an alternative you could start your agent with some code to find out whether or not it should continue to run. This would be more flexible than extending the schedule formula.

I know that this is possible and I often use this, but the purpose is to avoid unnecessary starts of agents when I know in advance when they should run again
