Not for ntp4, at this point in time.  I can see doing that for ntp5,
which we're already starting to think about.

And to sneak it in, we've had 2 decent donations and 2 joins since
yesterday - that puts us almost 10% towards our goal!

If you haven't joined or donated, please do, and also please tell other
folks about this.  We really need the support and every bit helps.
