I find it somewhat disappointing that this attitude exists. At least for
end nodes, why can't there be a faster convergence option available? The
scenario for NTP usage today is very significantly different from twenty
I'm also disappointed that people spend time arguing about these issues,
when the bugs I have reported (such as significant performance differences
between 4.2.4, 4.2.5 and 4.2.6) go unresolved.
