Three. The two of interest are for network sockets and refclocks.

Also, we want to elminate once-per-second time ticks and move to an
event-queue-based architecture that only wakes up when it needs to.

I hear that.  I have the same problem.  The socket handling is the last
serious tangle we haven't cleaned up.

If you can do that one, please do.  That will leave me able to
concentrarte on the other things.
