Please add the feature to allow users to activate catalog items at a specific date/time and have them expire on a specific date/time.

I have a wholesale business that has a high rate of inventory turn over. Due to this, I don’t have Magento set to manage my stock. Instead, I have been manually disabling and deleting items from the catalog every couple of weeks (which has been quite tedious and time consuming). I feel that it would be tremendously beneficial for every Magento user to have this feature as it will allow them to pre-input/upload their merchandise to activate at a future date and have them taken down automatically as well (possibly with an option to disable or delete them from database for a cleaner catalog).

I’m using the latest Magento CE 1.7. I forgot to mention that I had found that extension but it seems that it breaks installations. There aren’t any other extensions that I know of that do this. :\
