Of course.  But now I have a much more complex sysadmin problem.  I
can't expect most people to do that.  Dedicating just one host to ntp
is asking a lot of people.  Plus I am resistant to this 'cloud' way of
thinking.  More machines to debug and fail in more ways.

I will do it offline when I have an event in the data I want to freeze
in time.
