In practice you're right Danny, personally however, I would like to see
questions about alternative implementations treated with a little less
scorn (and yes, I've been making such replies myself).

This would probaly make it easier to persuade those lost souls running
MS or some other broken (S)NTP code to convert! :-)

PS. Here in Norway we celebrate Christmas eve, not the day after, so
Merry Christmas to everyone!
