That's right. If the cron job is set up as described in the
documentation, it will take care of restarting the cluster when the
system starts up.

Adding a bro.rc-like script which starts/stops the cluster directly
shouldn't be too hard though.

No, it hasn't but that would be an easy extension as well. What
exactly would you need? Just the capability to run an arbitrary
script whenever the cluster start/stop commands are performed? (And
if so, on any node's start/stop?)
