I am planning on recategorizing several of the current blockers to the
ntp4-5.0 release.

And folks have been very good about finding new problems to be fixed,
and reporting them.

But yes, I know that "software isn't finished until the last user is

4.2.8 release.

More about this as soon as I can.
