I don't think I've read a request where this should be fixed in an older

The problem in this NG seems to be that some insiders seem to assume all
users are running a very recent version of NTP, and I'm pretty sure this is
not the case. 

I think most users run the version which comes with their OS or
distribution, and stuck with it unless they stumble across a bug or
limitation, in which case it's normally sufficient to point them to the
latest version.
