Dynamic interface code is fine. It just needs to be integrated and catch 
up with hte latest
changes to ntp_io.c.

Any recommendations on sequence ?
    The major impact for dynamic interface changes is
    in ntp_io.c and some ntp_proto.c, ntp_request.c, ntpdc*.c (in about 
that sequence)
    if I remember right.
