[ntp:hackers] Why are we going down this road? Question on listen-on, query-on, -I

Can someone please explain to me why we even thinking about doing 
these features? The reference code base is getting more and more 
complex for very little gain. It appears that we are continually 
increasing the layer violations for no better reason than "we can". I 
can see having these layer violations for features like interleave 
mode, because it furthers the NTP mission, to provide better time 
synchronization. But all of these other changes do not do that at all. 
   We should take a deep breath and think about whether or not this 
trip is really necessary. Personally, I don't think it is.
