I think you should start a list of that sort of change.

Currently, we can switch between our code and ntpd classic.  The same 
ntp.conf works for both.

I think we should preserve that until we make an explicit decision that it's 
the right time to make the break.

It may be disabled for general IP addresses, but it's used all the time for 
monitoring your own servers.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
