Are you in agreement with Danny, then, that even if the functionality
requires authentication:

    (1) the output file not exist, and
    (2) the output file must be in a prearranged directory, and
    (3) we need special code for the directive to set that directory
to ensure it can only be configured in the startup ntp.conf, not via
ntpq :config/config-from-file?

I would like to settle these issues and commit the changes ASAP.
Everyone is invited to weigh in.
