Is that really a good idea?  Won't you get stuck maintaining that script 
forever?


I'm not plugged into any of the system-level packaging discussions.  How do 
people normally phase-out things like ntpdate that have been around long 
enough (and work well enough) to get used by low-level boot time scripts and 
such?
