Yes, maybe a pretty trivial one.  But we don't really have the larger
check framework for it to live inside yet; that gets into some waf issues
rgat I need to chase down in my copious free time.

You misspelled "I'd rather have root canal than go through that
again."  Yeesh...  On NTPsec, I'm planning to stay strictly away from
building shared libraries and Python extensions written in C for that
exact reason.  They were a fun stunt in GPSD but not worth the
downstream complexity cost.
