This is the first I've heard of it, so I assume that it has never 
appeared on this newsgroup, and its authors are not active here.

What really annoys me, though, is that it fails to describe the essence 
of the algorithm on the first page. That's par for the course for 
commercial software, but this says that it is open source.  Can you 
point me to where this information is provided (I think ntpd has a 
similar problem, though).
