Config file format - (Was: [ntp:hackers] FreeBSD serial ports)

I see no reason to lose the remote config stuff - it is mode7 and is
implementation-specific.

I would also like to see the -c flag take a URL as an option, so one might
say:

 ntpd -c file:///etc/ntp.conf  (current behavior)

 ntpd -c http://ntpconf.my.dom.ain  (get a conf file from a local server)


I'd also like to have the ability for ntpd to write its current config file.

Just some thoughts.
