Proposed argument changes to ntpq (fixing bug #319)

If you are looking at ntpq, it would be nice if there was a simple way to see 
the packets sent/received and not much else.

A few of the packets have binary data.  It may be as simple as only assoc IDs 
are in binary.  Everything else is raw ascii so it doesn't need any 
complicated parsing or reformatting.

We need wire packets rather than logical/assembled packets. This won't show 
fragmentation on the wire, but there is a reassembly layer in ntpq and I want 
to see the packets below that layer.

[Context is retransmission bugs in ntpq.]

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
