It means we don't have to port that code to Go. I'd be happy to drop
refclocks on the first cut and develop the new/wonderful refclock interface
in Go rather than c.
The refclock code would be running in a separate address space so bugs in a
refclock don't pollute the main ntpd.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
