I was trying to look into doing the same way.  Somehow use the cron setup built into magento - outlined at http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/how_to/how_to_setup_a_cron_job , and perhaps use the profile XML generated to run in the config file.  But I think that a class that inherits the Observer Interface needs to be created, but I am not exactly sure where it needs to go, if the observer class only uses objects in the model namespace, and if the XML generated in the Profile setup can even be used in the config.xml… so many questions, so little answers…

I’ll just drop this here ... step four of my article is about automating dataflow profiles via cron
