I do have programming skills, just not in this language.  But it's not 
just programming skills - it's understanding the architecture of NTP as 
well.  Which bit to alter - and that was not obvious in this case.  You 
will find that I have contributed quite a lot to NTP in terms of 
monitoring utilities, and in many hours of testing.  With Dave Hart's 
help, I even managed to get NTP to compile once on my Windows system, but 
with my level of C skills you would not want any of my C code in a 
production release!

Fortunately, someone has now done the programming work, as the requirement 
is not just mine alone.
