Several of the ntpdc options are of course available in ntpq, but 
monlist is an important exception:

   'ntpdc -c monlist <server>'

is the command I use to run a spider across my corporate ntp network, 
until that option is supported by ntpq, I really do need it to stay in 

Otherwise, I agree that ntpdc should be slimmed down at least to the 
extent that all functional overlap with ntpq can be removed.
