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.
