By "scarce resources" I believe he meant "scare programming resources on 
the NTP project" - as in "Why do we have to make this change, test this 
change, document this change, and support this change, when you could 
just pass -g as one of the elements of argv[] you pass to the main() 
routine of the embedded NTP client and be done with it."

I've done that sort of thing myself on embedded projects - just pass the 
options you need on the fake command line you pass to the embedded program.
