I've just added a library of ntp.conf snippets to the etc directory in
the distribution.  The names sjould make what they do pretty clear.


The idea is that users should be able to piece these together and have
a working ntp.conf without having to fuss about the exact
configuration syntax.  See also etc/example.conf.

Some details aren't settled yet.  Mark wants to go to an Apache-style
conf.d setup where all snippets in a specified directory are
interpeted, but I'd like us to prove the general concept before I try
getting cute with the scanner code.

Please review.  If you have a snippet you think is generally useful
enough to add, let's see it.
