   go to an event-queue architecture that wakes the daemon up just in time
   for the next scheduled event (rather than a once-per-second timer tick).
-* Richer signal semantics: HUP for close/reopen of any files (logrotate…),
-  USR1 for re-read of config and maybe USR2 for re-read of an alternate
-  config file (so you can go back pre ante by just sending USR1 if you
-  messed up). Open for discussion.
 * Take another look at SHM.  Hal thinks we can make a version that is

+Receive packet processing cleanup:
+  There is an AM table in the top of ntp_peer that does a table lookup
