Future projects (post release)

There are two projects I've had my eye on for a while.

The first is to remove the input buffer queue.  That's leftover from before 
kernels supported time stamps on received network packets.  (ntpd used to 
grab the packets from an IO signal handler)

The other is to remove the table lookup in the early stage of input packet 
processing.  It may have been a good way to handle all the complications of 
multicast, broadcast, pool, and peer as well as the simple client/server 
modes.  I think it will be much cleaner to just dispatch by mode.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
