My objection wasn't that the options might or might not fit the above
constraints.  It was that a program that can be used interactively it
shouldn't force me to interact with it.  Whether the options of ntpmon
aren't consistent with ntpq I don't really care.  It's a new program and
if I can use it to replace my the command line using 'watch -n5 ntpq …'
then I'll likely switch.
