Setting which theme to use during Drupal 7 cron

Recently I ran into an issue where I had to generate content within a Drupal 7 cron run using node_view(). Normally there wouldn't be much of an issue here except that I was also trying to do some custom work within node.tpl.php in the main theme for the site.

After much frustration, I learned that during cron, the administration theme is used. After some thought, that makes sense and normally would not cause any issues but in my case it caused nothing but pain.
