[ntp:questions] Keeping NTP Honest Redux

I've come to the conclusion that since NTP doesn't correct for
temperature variations, it's long-term compensation is counter-
productive.  Therefore, instead of letting the poll period increase to
the default 1024s, perhaps it'd be best to limit it to 64s.  However,
this requires that each server has the option maxpoll attached to it.
It'd be more convenient to have set this parameter for all servers
from a single place, such as the old tinker maxpoll option.

So, why was tinker maxpoll removed?  Any chance to get it back in?
