There is a lot of wiggle room in "toy client".

The starting point would be send a request and print out stuff from the 
response.  That could evolve into a replacement for ntpdate and/or ntpdig.

Once it sends and receives well formed packets, it can turn into a traffic 
generator and/or collect statistics.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
