Just a quick note to those thinking about tinkering with the TrueTime
It is used by the currently shipping Endrun Technologies clocks. These
are CDMA clocks and have a "native" mode, but there is no NTP driver for
that mode and they recommend running either Trimble or TrueTime
emulation mode. Since I had several problems making the Trimble
emulation work, we use the TrueTime driver in conjunction with kernel
PPS (FreeBSD) with great success.
Both ESnet and Internet2 make use of these clocks and I'm sure that
there are many others so try not to break anything and don't assume that
it's mostly obsolete.
