     Nothing is impossible <g>. They're looking into it, we'll see what 
comes up.

     I had seen it, and even tried it briefly, but it doesn't seem to 
work, at least not for me and on that box. To cut a long story short, if 
I make it listen on the internal nic it doesn't seem to be able to query 
the time servers via the external nic.

    I didn't want to report it, for several reasons. One is that I 
wanted that "connection refused" strangeness out of the way ASAP. 
Another one is I'm not even sure that this -I stuff is supposed to work 
already - after all I pulled it out of dev.
